Heaton Ranch Receives 2012 Leopold Conservation Award
Alton - SAND COUNTY FOUNDATION, the UTAH FARM BUREAU FEDERATION, the UTAH CATTLEMEN’S ASSOCIATION, TROUT UNLIMITED and WESTERN AGCREDIT named the HEATON RANCH as the recipient of the 2012 Leopold Conservation Award.
“The Heatons have made conservation a family tradition,” says Brent Haglund, Sand County Foundation president. “Through adaptive management techniques, innovation and outreach, the Heaton family are going a long way to ensure that the agricultural operation and its natural resources will not only endure, but thrive for future generations.”
The Leopold Conservation Award, named in honor of world-renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, is comprised of $10,000 and a Leopold crystal. The award is presented annually in eight states to private landowners who practice responsible land stewardship and management.
The ranch’s 140,000-plus private and federal acres support abundant wildlife populations—including sage grouse and a premier trophy mule deer herd—and 1,250 head of cattle. Each fall, the ranchers trail cattle 100 miles to the south and graze on winter forage on the Arizona Strip, the area of land north of the Colorado River and Grand Canyon in Arizona.
“These cattle pay for all the conservation work we do. Conservation is a top priority for us, and we recognize that’s what’s kept us in business today,” says Karl Heaton. “They’d like to put summer homes out here, but we’re maintaining open spaces. We’re an agriculture ranch and that’s how we want to keep it.”
