Boulder County now accepting nominations for the 2024 Conservation Awards

Nominations accepted through Monday, June 3.

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Parks & Open Space department is accepting nominations for the annual Conservation Awards through Monday, June 3.

The nomination criteria have been updated to be more inclusive, remove barriers, and encourage nominations that celebrate projects and programs that reach underserved residents of Boulder County.

Anyone may nominate individuals, families, community groups, 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.

The Boulder County Commissioners will present the awards on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 3 p.m. at the Boulder County Parks & Open Space headquarters building.
