The search to find this year’s worthy recipient(s) of the Bowland Award has gone one step further with a short list of 4 drawn up for consideration by delegates at Landscapes for Life Conference 2014 next week.
The Bowland Award, a hen harrier sculpture in bronze, is awarded annually for the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The short listed nominees are
• RSPB staff and volunteers in the Forest of Bowland AONB
• Altogether Archaeology – North Pennines
• Councillor William (Bill) Jefferson M.B.E
• Chilterns Commons Project
Howard Davies, CEO of the National Association for AONBs, said: “The Award is one of our ways of acknowledging the tireless work of people who contribute to making the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty wonderful places to live and work in or visit. We are looking for a person or a group of people for whom sharing, learning and inspiring is a way of life”.
He added: “The short-listed nominees will give a “final pitch” at Landscapes for Life Conference 2014 “Sharing, Learning, Inspiring” next week and we look forward to an exciting evening of voting.”
