Conservation Pays in Missouri
The Leopold Conservation Award recognizes extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation, inspires other landowners through their example, and helps the general public understand the vital role private landowners can and do play in conservation success.
In Missouri, the award recipient receives an Aldo Leopold crystal and $10,000.
"Conservation can accomplish its objectives only when it springs from an impelling conviction on the private land owners."
