INDIANAPOLIS — Nominations are being accepted for the 2020 River Friendly Farmer Award. This annual statewide initiative recognizes farmers who, through good production management practices, help keep Indiana’s rivers, lakes and streams clean.
Each county Soil and Water Conservation District may nominate up to two farmers who do an outstanding job of protecting their rivers, lakes and streams through their every day conservation management practices on the farm. Watershed organizations also may nominate farmers for the award by submitting an application to a county SWCD.
The 2020 River Friendly Farmer Award Ceremony will take place in August at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Visit the IASWCD website for nomination forms and more information here. Deadline to submit nominations and the required signature page is June 12, 2020.
