December 8, 2008 – January 15, 2009
The deadline for 2009 National Wetlands Awards nominations has been extended until January 15th, 2009. Help us commemorate 20 years of outstanding contributions to wetland conservation by nominating someone you know for the #20NationalWetlandsAwards program.
The National Wetlands Awards Program honors outstanding individual achievement in six categories: Education and Outreach, Science Research, Conservation and Restoration, Landowner Steward- ship, State, Tribal, and Local Program Development, and Wetland Community Leader. In May 2009, the winners in each category will be recognized during a ceremony on Capitol Hill.
The Environmental Law Institute hands out the accolades, which are funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Highway Administration, NOAA Fisheries, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and USDA Forest Service.
