Join us for the 2018 Nebraska Conservation Awards on Saturday, May 19th, 2018, at Mammel Hall in Omaha. 

At this event, we will unveil our Conservation Scorecard, present Conservation Awards, and hear from noted adventurer and photographer, David Thoreson. 

Conservation Scorecard: 

NLCV's annual Scorecard grades our Nebraska State Senators on how well they voted on conservation issues during the last Legislative Session. Attending this event will give you a sneak peak of the 2018 Scorecard. 

Conservation Awards: 

We will present awards to elected officials, volunteers, and members of the public who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to conservation in Nebraska. 

Keynote Speaker: 

David Thoreson is an adventurer who has spent his life sailing the globe and capturing his experiences through photography and writing.

He is the first American to transit the Northwest Passage from the east to the west, and he is the only American sailor to navigate the Northwest Passage in both directions. He has also completed the 28,000 circumnavigation by sail of the North and South American Continents.

Over the course of his adventures, he has captured the stunning beauty of nature, and the damage being done to it. He has been witness to the disappearance of ice in the Arctic and a rapidly-changing ocean environment. His experiences have inspired him to speak and present publicly about modern exploration and major environmental issues, such as climate change, ocean acidification, plastics in the ocean, arctic ice loss, energy and resource development.

David has published multiple photobooks, and has owned and operated a fine art gallery since 1996. His work has appeared across a broad spectrum of media from the National Park Service and Smithsonian to the Wall Street Journal and PBS, and he received an Emmy nomination for his documentary about his circumnavigation of the globe.
