Conservation Cooperator of the Year

Conservation Cooperator of the Year is an annual award given to a Dakota County landowner or organization that demonstrates outstanding land stewardship through education, project implementation or dedication to our natural environment. Our nominated conservationist is honored each year at the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation District (MASWCD) convention held in December. For more information on the MASWCD Outstanding Conservationist Award, visit the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts website.
