Cass County Soil Conservation District Achievement Winner
The North Dakota Soil Conservation Achievement Awards Program has been recognizing individuals who have made outstanding efforts to conserve valuable natural resources on their land since 1948. It is a statewide program with each of the 56 Soil Conservation Districts participating and the only program of its kind in the nation. Each year the district selects an individual or family who has demonstrated his/their ability to apply conservation practices to the land they own. Once selected, they receive a large 17″ X 24″ colored aerial photograph of their farm and a trip to the annual meeting where they are honored for their accomplishments.
