Central Platte NRD’s Conservation Awards

My name is Marcia Lee of the Central Platte Natural Resources District in Grand Island Nebraska, and this is.. the Natural Resources Report.

Nominations are being accepted for the Central Platte NRD’s Conservation Awards until November 5th.  The CPNRD board expanded the awards to select winners in three categories this year: Cropland, Grassland and Community Awards.  

The awards recognize land owners and communities who use best management practices on their operation or within their landscape designs. 

Anyone may nominate a person, partnership, operation, ranch, community group or community project. 

Examples of conservation practices may include: prescribed burning; tree planting, nutrient management, soil moisture sensors, crop rotation, field imagery, rain gardens or rain barrels; as well as other innovative conservation practices.

Award winners will receive a $100 gift card & a sign to display on their land to recognize their accomplishments. The presentation of awards will be Thursday, December 18 at Balz Reception Hall in Grand Island.  Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be provided by Great Western Bank.

Again, nominations are open until Wednesday, November 5th.  The nomination form is available on the Central Platte NRD website at: www.cpnrd.org or by contacting the CPNRD office at (308) 385-6282.  That number again is 385-6282.

Thank you for listening.  This is Marcia Lee, keeping you informed about your natural resources and the way NRDs protect lives, protect property and protect the future.
