Julie Burkhardt was awarded the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Agriculture yesterday at the Larry Branen Idaho Ag Summit. Julie has served on the Adams Soil and Water Conservation District for ten years, and has been involved with the Adams and Weiser Soil Conservation Districts with stream bank restoration and stabilization project on the Little Weiser River. She is currently the chairwoman for the Adams Weed Management Cooperative, and has helped secure grants totaling $400,000. Funds were used to build facilities and obtain equipment for a county-wide weed program. Julie is also owner/partner in Range West, a consulting firm which represents public land ranchers.
IASCD is thrilled for Julie, and congratulates her on this honor!
