Sand County Foundation (SCF) and the Kentucky Agricultural Council (KAC) have joined forces to inaugurate the Leopold Conservation Award (LCA) for Kentucky. The LCA recognizes farmers, ranchers, and other private landowners actively committed to living the legacy of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold. Recognizing extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation, the LCA inspires other landowners through award winners' examples, and helps the general public understand the vital role private landowners can and do play in conservation success. In 2019 the award was presented in 20 states. The Leopold Conservation Award is a competitive award that recognizes landowner achievement in voluntary conservation. Sand County Foundation presents the award in California, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and in New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont). www.leopoldconservationaward.org.
