Boulder County now accepting nominations for the 2021 Land Conservation Awards

Nominations accepted through Sunday, Feb. 28

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Parks & Open Space department is accepting nominations for the annual Land Conservation Awards through Sunday, Feb. 28.

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

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

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.

Winners will be announced during national volunteer week, April 18-24. The Boulder County Commissioners will present the awards to the 2021 winners in October; the 2020 winners will also be honored due to the cancelation of the 2020 event last April. The in-person ceremony will take place at an indoor or outdoor venue near Longmont, depending on the status of COVID-19 restrictions.
