Named in honor of Aldo Leopold, Sand County Foundation’s Leopold Conservation Award makes an impact by publicly recognizing extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation. It inspires other landowners representing millions of acres, and influences the general public’s understanding of the importance of private working land in conservation.

The award is presented by the Sand County Foundation in partnership with Governor Greg Gianforte's Office and the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation’s Rangeland Resources Committee.

Annual finalists receive $10,000 cash and a commemorative crystal award.
