Now Accepting 2017 Conservation Award Nominations

The North Carolina Wildlife Federation is seeking nominations for the Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards, the state’s highest honors for conservation leaders.

Since 1958, awards have been given to individuals, associations, businesses and governmental bodies that take an active role in protecting North Carolina’s natural resources with unwavering commitment to conservation in the state. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 30. An awards committee of qualified conservationists will review all nominations and select the 2017 winners.

Nominees should demonstrate outstanding achievement in, and dedication to, conservation. Candidates are not required to hold professional positions related to conservation. Awards are given for volunteer or professional contributions with categories ranging from water, land and forests to youth, sportsman and wildlife volunteer activities. Nominations may be submitted by individuals, businesses or organizations. Awards will be presented at the Governor’s Conservation Achievement Awards banquet on September 9th in Cary, NC.
