North Dakota State Forester Larry Kotchman received the “2013 Professional Award” from the North Dakota Association of Soil Conservation Districts at their 75th annual meeting held this month in Fargo. The Professional Award is given to an individual who has for many years contributed significantly to soil and water conservation accomplishments that have resulted in many benefits to the State of North Dakota.
As a member of North Dakota’s State Technical Committee, Kotchman has been instrumental in securing several cost-share programs and grant funds that have helped the Soil Conservation Districts enable landowners to plant trees and install fabric weed barrier. Congratulations Larry!
