Land Conservation Award nominations accepted until January 29

Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Parks & Open Space Department is accepting nominations for the annual Land Conservation Awards until Friday, January 29, 2016.

Anyone may nominate individuals, families or organizations that have made outstanding contributions in Boulder County in Land Conservation, Environmental Stewardship, or Historic Preservation. 

Special consideration will be given to land conservation or historic preservation activities that particularly affect unincorporated Boulder County and for activities that demonstrate ongoing effort. One-time efforts resulting in lasting benefits to the county’s environmental landscape will also be favored for selection. Other award selection criteria include conservation activities that are a model for others or that increase public awareness of land conservation.

People may not nominate themselves nor are they permitted to nominate organizations of which they are an officer or director. Official projects of federal, state, county, special district and municipal government agencies are not eligible to be nominated.

For more information and to download the application, please go to or contact Vivienne Jannatpour at or 303-678-6277.

The Boulder County commissioners will present the awards during volunteer week in April 2016 at the county Parks & Open Space headquarters in Longmont.
