Named for the pioneering conservationist Aldo Leopold, the Leopold Restoration Awards recognize excellence in ecological restoration.
Friends of the Arboretum, in partnership with the Aldo Leopold Foundation, administers this prestigious awards program.
By recognizing and rewarding exemplary restoration ecology work, we hope to encourage others in this critical effort while supporting the Arboretum’s goals and activities.
Awards are offered in four categories to deserving recipients who have advanced the craft, knowledge, and public awareness of ecological restoration in Wisconsin. See How to Nominate for instructions and category descriptions.
Award-winners are honored at a dinner ceremony in October. The award dinner is open to the public, with advanced reservations.
The nomination process is open for the 2016 Leopold Restoration Awards. Please submit nominations by March 15.
The Leopold Restoration Awards are on hiatus for 2015.
