Extension district seeks nominations for conservation honors

The Kansas Bankers Association will again be sponsoring the Conservation Awards Program in Osage County. The KBA, K-State Research and Extension, and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Tourism partner each year to announce six conservation award categories: Energy, water quality, water conservation, soil conservation, windbreaks and wildlife habitat.

The purpose of the program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of agricultural and natural resources of Kansas. Each year more than 200 Kansas producers and landowners are recognized through this program. Nominations for these awards can be made by any person in the county. Information about these awards can be picked up at the local Extension office or by visiting the K-State Research and Extension website at http://www.agronomy.k-state.edu/extension.

Nomination forms are available at the Osage County Conservation District office and the Frontier Extension District office, both in Lyndon. The Extension office can also mail nomination forms; call 785-828-4438 for a form.

Nomination forms should be completed and returned to the Frontier Extension District, PO Box 400, Lyndon, KS 66451, by Oct. 5, 2020. Upon receipt of the nomination forms, a committee chaired by Rod Schaub, Frontier Extension District agent, will select this year’s winners. Winners will be recognized in early 2021.
