Three individuals who have helped support programs and activities within the Sheridan County Conservation District have been recognized for their contributions.

Recently the district awarded its 2022 Conservation Partner Awards to Andrew Cassiday, Oakley Ingersoll and Chelsea Winslow, all of which work for the US Department of Agriculture.

The district created the award to acknowledge individuals, businesses and organizations that contribute to the District’s mission of protecting Sheridan County’s water and land quality through assistance programs, information and outreach, monitoring and planning.

District Manager Carrie Rogaczewski says the District integrates with the USDA on a lot of projects, and that it was time to recognize them for all their assistance.

“They provide assistance not just in the water quality improvement projects, but water monitoring. They really help us out in the field in those things. In the years when we planted the trees for the living snow fence, they were out there digging holes with us and putting things on the ground, and just all around helping us to provide better service to the producers in Sheridan County.”

Rogaczewski adds past awards have recognized assistance in such projects as the Acme Power Plant Reclamation, the Tongue River Dayton Stream Stabilization Project and the I-90 Living Snow Fence to name a few.
