Hillsborough County Commissioners established the Theodore Roosevelt Hillsborough Forever Conservation Award to be given annually to an individual or group who exemplifies dedication to preserving the County’s natural resources.
Nominees must live or work in Hillsborough County and “be someone who shows persistence and dedication to long-term conservation of the County’s natural resources, demonstrates integrity in performance toward conservation goals, and displays attributes of true conservation stewardship,’’ according to the award criteria.
Nominations must be made by 5 p.m. on Feb. 10 and can be sent to Ross Dickerson. Obtain a Theodore Roosevelt Hillsborough Forever Conservation Award nomination form.
Nominations will go through the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program General Committee, which will send a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners for approval. The Board will hold an awards ceremony in April to coincide with National Arbor Day.
