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 2020 Conservation Government Leadership Awards. The deadline is January 31, 2020.
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.
Recognition can be based on the work of a local government, multigovernment partnership, commission, or board but must be sanctioned by the governing body or bodies.
Awards will be presented during the 2020 Pennsylvania Land Conservation Conference April 1-3 in Gettysburg.
