Natural Land Institute seeks nominations for land conservation award
From press release
The Natural Land Institute is seeking nominations of individuals for outstanding achievements in land conservation. Nominees with distinguished lifetime accomplishments will be given the highest consideration. The award is named for George and Barbara Fell, who founded the Natural Land Institute in 1958 and devoted their lives to the protection of natural areas in Illinois.
Nominees for the award should demonstrate creativity or leadership in the preservation or stewardship of natural areas, restoration of natural areas, or have a history of promoting an understanding of the natural world in our region. They can work or volunteer in an area of activity related to land conservation, such as natural resource management, education, journalism, law or science.
Send nominations for the award by Feb. 4 to the Natural Land Institute, 320 S. Third St., Rockford, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The award will be presented at the Natural Land Institute’s annual meeting, held in March at Cliffbreakers in Rockford.
The Natural Land Institute is a not-for-profit land conservation organization that preserves forests, prairies and wetlands for native plants and animals, restores habitat for wildlife, and protects rivers and streams.
