Klamath Basin residents get land use awards

 October 27, 2005

Several Klamath Basin landowners were presented with conservation awards for responsible land use by a local district.

The Klamath Soil and Water Conservation District presented farmers and ranchers with awards Oct. 13 during the organization's annual meeting.

The group's district manager, Rick Woodley, said more people were practicing good conservation than received awards.

“There is such an extensive list of qualified and eligible landowners who deserve special recognition for their conservation practices that it is very difficult to only give a limited number of awards,” Woodley said in a written statement.

The organization's director Joe Watkins presented an overview of district activities and Klamath County Commissioner Bill Brown was the featured speaker of the evening. Brown is the natural resource liaison for the commissioner's office and a lifelong Klamath Basin resident.

Landowners Conservation Awards were presented to:

n Cameron Curtiss: Water Quality Improvement, Grazing and Land Management Practices

n Dunlea Farms: Water Conservation, Irrigation Water Management and No-Till Farming

n Balin Ranches: Irrigation Water Management, Grazing Management and Organic Farming

n Flowers Farms: Tail Water Recovery System, Underground Water Conveyance

n Louis Randall, Circle 5 Ranches: Wildlife Habitat, Juniper Control and No-Till Farming

n Glen and Sharnie Crouch, Hank and Debbie Caldwell: Water Quality Improvement, Wildlife Habitat and Grazing Management

n Danette Watson: Outstanding Conservation and Restoration Leadership.
