South Dakota: 2011 Leopold Conservation Award finalists

PIERRE, SD – Sand County Foundation, the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association and the South Dakota Grassland Coalition are pleased to announce the finalists for the 2011 Leopold Conservation Award.

“The health of South Dakota’s landscape is dependent on hard-working farmers and ranchers who are dedicated to ensuring that South Dakota’s land, water and wildlife are in better shape than when they found them,” said Brent Haglund, Sand County Foundation President. “The high quality of South Dakota nominees in the first two years of the award in this state made the selection process difficult but it proves that South Dakota’s natural resources are being cared for by innovative landowners who want to see them flourish for future generations.”

The Leopold Conservation Award, named in honor of world-renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, is comprised of $10,000 and a Leopold crystal. The award is presented annually in eight states to private landowners who practice responsible land stewardship and management.

The 2011 finalists, listed alphabetically, are:

• Gary and Amy Cammack, Meade County

• Jim and Karen Kopriva, Clark County

• Mortenson Family, Stanley County

• Smeenk Family, Butte County

The Leopold Conservation Award recipient will be formally recognized Dec. 7, 2011 at the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Convention in Pierre.

The Leopold Conservation Award in South Dakota is sponsored by the Bradley Fund for the Environment, American State Bank, Daybreak Ranch, Ducks Unlimited, Millborn Seeds, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Rassmussen Fund, South Dakota’s Conservation Districts, the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks, the South Dakota Farm Bureau Federation, the South Dakota Grassland Coalition, the South Dakota State University Foundation, Farm Credit Services of America, and The Nature Conservancy.
