Four award winners serve as caretakers
The four winners of this year's Leavenworth County 2001 Kansas Bankers Soil Conservation Award have proven themselves to be good stewards of the land.
These county residents have taken a great deal of pride in the land they own and farm, making sure it is available for future generations.
Whether they're planting trees to serve as wind breaks or filling in soil where wind has taken a toll, these four winners have shown their dedication to the land.
Nowadays, farmland is being squeezed out in Leavenworth County by suburban sprawl. So the work of these award winners becomes even more important. They are holding onto and serving as caretakers for a diminishing commodity.
They are to be congratulated for their work and for their dedication.
