Nokesville man named top conservation volunteer in nation

Duane Mohr of Nokesville donated the first of what would eventually be more than 500 hours to the cause of conservation in the fall of 2017. Eighteen months later, he received the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS’) highest award for volunteerism, a news release said.

The agency selected Mohr as the nation’s top individual volunteer for outstanding contributions to the Earth Team Program through his work with the Prince William Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD).

Mohr works as a soil conservationist for the district, which nominated him for assisting local residents with a wide range of stewardship activities to include nutrient management and grazing systems.

Mohr was also recognized as the top individual volunteer for the 11-state Southeast Region. He received both awards at a Virginia Association of Soil & Water Conservation Districts area meeting in Warrenton on April 3.
