National Association of Conservation Districts Award

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) honored conservation leaders from across the country in Nashville, Tennessee.

The NACD along with the USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) “Olin Sims Conservation Leadership Award” is presented annually to an individual, district or organization that has gone above and beyond in promoting conservation on private lands. This year’s award was presented by Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Acting Chief Leonard Jordan to Kris Swartz, a Wood Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD)
supervisor.

Swartz, a fifth-generation farmer from Perrysburg, Ohio, is the past president of the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation
