Academy wins conservation award

The Air Force Academy's Natural Resources department won the 2011 Department of Defense-level Military Installation Partnership Award from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service created this annual award in 2004 for the military installation that promotes conservation on military lands in the last year.  According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, this award was created to highlight the benefits of partnerships between the military and the fish and wildlife service to conservation.

The Air Force Academy was notified of the award March 2. The Academy also won the regional award in this competition for 2010.
