Prather Ranch Receives Highest Environmental Honor
2015 Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Award 

For the second time in a decade, Jim and Mary Rickert have received the state’s highest environmental honor, the Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award (GEELA) for their business practices at Prather Ranch in five northern counties in California.

Prather Ranch was first awarded the GEELA award in 2004 under the office of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Since then, Prather Ranch has continued to hone its agricultural and horticultural practices to continuously strengthen its responsible stewardship of hundreds of thousands of acres in Northern California.

Two months ago, Prather Ranch was recognized by the Sand County Foundation, the California Farm Bureau Federation, and Sustainable Conversation as a recipient of the 2015 California Leopold Conservation Award.
