The announcement that the Conservation Awards Program will again be held in this county was received today by Alicia Boor, Barton County Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agent, who has been asked to serve as chairman of a committee to select candidates for awards.
“This program is being sponsored”, said Alicia, “by the Kansas Bankers Association (KBA). This year the KBA, K-State Research and Extension, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service are proud to announce six award categories including Energy Conservation, Water Quality, Water Conservation, Soil Conservation, Windbreaks, and Wildlife Habitat.” The purpose of this program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of the agricultural and natural resources of Kansas by giving recognition to those farmers and landowners who have made outstanding progress in practicing conservation on their farms. Each year over 200 Kansas producers and landowners are recognized through this program.
Nominations can be made by any person in the county. They should be sent to Alicia Boor at Barton County Extension, 1800 12th Street, Great Bend KS, 67530, by phone at 620-793-1910 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or to Ron Klein, SDC, 1520 Kansas Ave, Great Bend, KS 67530, by phone 602-792-5329 ext 3, or email, email@example.com by September 30.
