Has your township exhibited leadership and success in conserving open space and natural resources? If so, nom­inate it for one of the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association’s 2018 Conservation Government Leadership Awards. The deadline is February 12, 2018.
The contest is open to any Pennsylvania municipal or county government that has demonstrated leadership and vision in permanently conserving open space and valuable and unique land and/or water resources.
Eligible programs or activities include land use planning and regulations, resource protection strategies, and land or easement acquisitions.
