Established in 2004, the State Land Board Awards recognize projects that promote responsible, sustainable stewardship of Oregon’s natural resources or benefit Department of State Lands-related programs.
Each award has a separate nomination form and criteria. All nominations are due in February each year for projects completed in the previous calendar year.
A review committee selects award recipients, based on criteria set forth in the nomination form. Generally, one award per category is presented each year. However, the committee may determine that more than one award is appropriate, or that no award will be given, in a specific category.
Winners are notified in March, and awards are presented at the April Land Board public meeting.
