Oklahoma Conservation Commission Soil Health Coordinator Amy Seiger was named the recipient of a Natural Resources Award from the Chickasaw Nation Office of Natural Resources. The Chickasaw Nation honored partners in conservation at the Chickasaw Office of Natural Resources Awards Ceremony held via Zoom on November 18. Seiger received the "Eagle's Flight, the Visionary Conservation Partnership Award."
She was among a list of very impressive recipients including: Dr. Todd Halihan (Oklahoma State University), recipient of "Water's Edge, the Community Natural Resources Sustainability Award," and Dr. Barney Austin (President of AquaStrategies) and Duane Smith (CEO of Duane Smith and Associates), Co-Recipients of the "Keeper of the Flame, the Visionary Leadership in Conservation Award."
Jennifer Bryant, Water Resources Manager with the Chickasaw Nation Office of Natural Resources, said, "Working with Amy Seiger is always such a pleasure. She's been a huge help to our program this year. Amy's played an integral role in the development of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Chickasaw Nation, Oklahoma Conservation Commission, Oka' Institute and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to partner to support each other's work in watersheds. In addition, she had taken the time to train our staff in soil sampling techniques to help our local producers. In everything Amy does, you can tell she truly has the local producer at heart, and for that we are truly glad to be able to work with her on so many projects."
Seiger said, "The Chickasaw Nation is a wonderful partner who works with our conservation districts, state agencies and federal agencies. I am very honored and humbled, that they thought of me to receive this award. This award was made possible because of their willingness, openness and dedication to continue a great partnership in conservation. Together we will continue to improve our natural resources and provide healthy communities."
"The Oklahoma Conservation Commission is very proud of Amy Seiger's efforts to promote soil health through working with the Chickasaw Nation both in terms of outreach to many or one-on-one consultations regarding conservation," said Trey Lam, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission. "Conservation has made great strides in Oklahoma and one of the key components to that is a common drive and commitment among the conservation partners, and the Chickasaw Nation is an amazing partner. The OCC thanks our tribal partners for this recognition and we congratulate Amy on her outstanding work with the Chickasaw Nation. We are excited about all the possibilities going forward in this conservation partnership."
