The first three awards are being presented jointly by the BLM and the FS to recognize outstanding contributions for individuals or organizations that demonstrate exemplary work in the conservation and management of fish, wildlife and native plant resources on public land administered by the BLM and the FS. The Linda Siebert Award will be presented to a current or retired BLM employee that has made significant contributions to the conservation of fish, wildlife and botanic resources over the course of a career. Any outstanding botanist, fisheries/aquatic resource biologist, wildlife biologist, BLM State Office program lead, and BLM line manager is eligible to receive this award. All State Directors are encouraged to nominate individuals they feel should be recognized.
Please take a few minutes to consider individuals or organizations that deserve national recognition by BLM’s Director and the FS Chief. Attached are the criteria to help evaluate and select nominees for these awards. If the group or project being nominated has a unique logo, we request the logo be attached with the nomination form.
