Established in 2004, the State Land Board Awards recognize exceptional projects and partners that protect and enhance Oregon's natural resources.
The Department of State Lands is now accepting nominations for the 18th annual State Land Board Awards.
The 2021 nomination deadline is Thursday, August 18. Awards will be presented at the October 11, 2022 Land Board meeting.
Any stream or wetland project completed in 2021, or that completed monitoring in 2021, may be eligible for a Stream Project Award or Wetland Project Award. Past awards have gone to wetland mitigation banks, dam removals, wetland restorations, fish habitat improvement projects, and more.
Last year, the Wetland Award went to the Jackson-Frazier Wetland Long Term Habitat Restoration, a collaborative effort that corrected years of damage to a vital wetland in Corvallis, restoring water flow and supporting native species.
Anyone and YES! Past nominations have come from landowners, consultants, funding partners, DSL staff, government agencies, watershed councils, local planners, businesses, organizations and more. If you have been a part of an exemplary project or partnership, please submit a nomination!
DSL convenes a selection committee that typically includes staff, partner organizations, and representatives of other state agencies to review nominations. Generally, one award per category is presented each year. However, the committee may recommend that more than one award be given, or that no award will be given, in a specific category.
