Conservation Stewardship Awards

The Conservation Stewardship Awards recognize outstanding conservation work and protection of stream and natural resources in Franklin County. Nominated annually by our staff and normally presented at our Annual Meeting and Board of Supervisors' Election.

Congratuations to our past Conservation Stewardship Awardees


  • City of Dublin- The City of Dublin earned this award for the ongoing strong partnership with Franklin Soil and Water. Most recently it has purchased equipment and supported a volunteer monitoring program on its streams. In addition, it has funded a monitoring program on its streams, implemented by Franklin Soil and Water. The program was started simply to determine the state of its streams and the impact of the city on those streams. It is the first city (other than Columbus) to institute a monitoring program on its streams, and it has done so voluntarily.
  • City of Reynoldsburg- The City of Reynoldsburg earned this award for being a supporter of the Watershed Coordinator program for at least nine years and a partner for longer than that. We have worked with the City to implement four grant-funded projects in its parks, and it provided match money that enabled us to implement another project in Columbus. An OSU student project we supported was implemented on a pond owned by the city. It used FSWCD mini-grant funds to plant a prairie in one of its parks. The city participated in the development of an NPS-IS plan for the Headwaters of Blacklick Creek watershed and has also implemented two very visible projects recently that employ green infrastructure.
