WSGA ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM
WSGA's Environmental Stewardship Award in partnership
with the Wyoming Department of Agriculture recognizes Wyoming cattlemen
whose natural resource stewardship practices contribute to the
environment and enhance productivity and profitability.
Each year a different Wyoming ranch is chosen for these
qualities after applying. By the ranches choice, a day will be set aside
during the summer to celebrate Wyoming's for most land stewards:

The Wyoming Leopold Conservation Award is given as part of the Wyoming Stock Growers Environmental Stewardship Award Program where both recognize a winning ranch for their hard work and dedication to voluntary conservation. Both awards are given each year to the winning ranch and we are proud of the great number of Wyoming ranchers and their operations that have been showcased through this program. This dedication sets an example of outstanding land management to landowners across Wyoming and the United States.
