Keep Oklahoma Beautiful’s Award of Excellence

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful has announced that the Rogers County Conservation District and the city of Claremore are recipients of the Award of Excellence in the group’s statewide environmental excellence competition. The awards will be presented Dec. 7 in Oklahoma City.

The judges recognized the district for its 120-acre Conservation Education Reserve that provides a hands-on learning experience for students and adults in the importance and management of natural resources. The district and the city worked together to implement a stormwater education program. Claremore’s Stormwater Public Education Program, in turn, provides teaching aides and materials as support of the district.
