Outstanding Conservationist

The Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (MASWCD) offers several award programs to recognize the outstanding conservation achievements taking place through SWCDs and their cooperators. One of these is the Outstanding Conservationist Award. Each year, with the support from The Farmer Magazine, an Outstanding Conservationist is selected from the county to be honored at the MASWCD Annual Convention for their hard work and dedication to the environment and our natural resources.
