2000 - Nonprofit Organization Award - Environmental Improvement - Kerr Center Producer Grant Program

The Kerr Center Producer Grant Program encourages Oklahoma farmers and ranchers to adopt sustainable practices on their land. To achieve “sustainable” status, farmers and ranchers must be environmentally responsible and protect natural resources such as soil and water. They must also conserve energy and enhance wildlife habitats. Farmers and ranchers who propose innovative projects can receive cash incentives to help them implement those projects. Farmers’ projects have established buffer zones around ponds and streams, managed weeds without chemicals, and increased wildlife habitats.

The Kerr Center Producer Grant Program encourages farmers and ranchers to act as environmental stewards, and when projects are successful, others are encouraged to try similar projects on their own land. THE KERR CENTER PRODUCER GRANT PROGRAM IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
