Saginaw Bay Agricultural Conservation Awards Dinner

Join us for a memorable night of great fun, food, and friends!

Open to invitees; farmers; agribusiness and conservation professionals; project implementers, funders, and participants; and Nature Conservancy members. 

For the last three years, The Nature Conservancy has partnered with agribusinesses, governments, corporations, non-profits and conservation agencies to test innovative agricultural conservation programs in critical areas of the Saginaw Bay Watershed—reducing more than 1,260 tons of sediment runoff in Michigan's largest watershed. These practices help farmers retain healthy and productive soil while providing many ecological and economic benefits to the community. This event will recognize these outstanding achievements as we bestow awards on area farmers, agribusiness and conservation professionals.
