Nominate Your Neighbor

Have you or your neighbor gone above and beyond in applying conservation on the land? We would like to know about it.

For over 25 years, the Scott County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) has recognized individuals in Scott County for their outstanding soil and water conservation efforts and for implementing best management practices. This year the SWCD is giving citizens a chance to nominate their favorite conservation farmer and urban landowner. The SWCD will review all nominations and select the award winners in January 2013, which will be recognized by the community and local media.

The "Conservation Farmer of the Year" will be judged on overall conservation practices. Nominees can be you, your neighbor, landowner or operator, who implement good farming practices to protect the soil & water for our future generations. The SWCD will also recognize an "Urban Conservation Landowner" for their efforts to install infiltration practices that help to retain rain on their properties. Practices could include rain gardens, permeable paving, soil quality restoration, or similar best management practices.

Please send in your nominations for "Conservation Farmer of the Year" and "Conservation Urban Landowner of the Year" by DECEMBER 15th to the SWCD office by phone: (563) 391-1403 x3 or email: jan.mcclurg@ia.nacdnet.net.
