"Sand County Foundation's Leopold Conservation Award Program celebrates private landowners for outstanding voluntary achievement in conservation on agricultural lands."
Sand County Foundation is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to working with private landholders across North America on voluntary land management practices that benefit the environment. Sand County Foundation was founded more than forty years ago to protect the land surrounding renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold’s shack from development. Rather than depending on public acquisition, our protection strategy was rooted in private action inspired by Leopold’s Land Ethic, using responsible, voluntary means.I can't seem to embed youtube anymore.
Today, Sand County Foundation is the nation’s leading voice for private landowners. The Foundation works with farmers, ranchers and foresters to improve the quality of their lands through science, ethics, and incentives. Our focus has expanded from research and experimental management on Leopold’s land to supporting and encouraging the stewards of hundreds of thousands of acres.
