Local conservationists to be honored as area finalists at state soil and water conservation district convention

The Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (MASWCD) has named John and Deb Bruihler of Rushford as one of eight Area Finalists in the 2014 Outstanding Conservationist Award Program. The Bruihlers will be recognized at a Dec. 9 luncheon at MASWCD’s 78th annual convention in Bloomington. The awards program recognizes farm families, individuals, conservation organizations, and other groups for their accomplishments in implementing conservation practices and improving Minnesota’s natural resources.

Of the eight finalists, one will be announced as the State’s Outstanding Conservationist of the Year at the Dec. 9 luncheon.

“We’re proud of John and Deb Bruihler for what they’ve done in conserving our natural resources in our area,” said Brian Hazel, Chair of the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors, which nominated the Bruihlers for the award. “It’s great to be able to recognize the work they’ve done locally that has had an influence beyond their own farm. They’ve provided a wonderful example of stewardship by using and promoting no till and cover crops,” he said.

MASWCD, with support from The Farmer magazine, sponsors the Outstanding Conservationist Award Program.
