BLM extends mining award deadline
The Bureau of Land Management has extended the deadline for submitting nominations for the 2017 Reclamation and Sustainable Mineral Development Awards to June 12.
These non-monetary awards recognize those programs created to foster sustainable development, which encourages environmental health, social responsibility, and economic security.
Nominations should be submitted to the BLM state office where the individual or organization is located.
Proceeds from the Sept. 26 fundraiser hosted by The Library Tap House will go to local nonprofits For The Kids Foundation and The Dean’s Future Scholars Program.
