Conservation Champion Awards

Do you know a Conservation Champion?

Call for Nominations! 
McHenry County Conservation District is seeking nominations of individuals who are and have been Conservation Champions for the Public Open Space of McHenry County. These two inaugural Conservation Awards, Conservation Champion and Conservation Legacy, will recognize exceptional contributions of individuals who have made extraordinary impacts to the conservation movement through their continued dedication and support of the mission of the Conservation District.

Conservation-LEGACY-Award_FINALConservation Legacy Award recognizes contributions that transcend time. Whether the award winner dedicated ten or fifty years towards the local environment, their work should live on well past their earthly lifetime. Their legacy should be a gift to their community, as well as the plant life and wildlife within it. Regardless of how many lives they touched, Conservation Legacy Award winners need to have inspired others to become stewards of the land.
