Military Readiness and Conservation Awards

The Military Readiness and Conservation Award was established by Compatible Lands Foundation to recognize Department of Defense Leadership,  REPI partners, and landowners, who have made significant contributions to furthering the Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) program’s mission of protecting our military’s readiness while preserving our environment. Since 2016 CLF has honored key individuals for their contributions that help advance the REPI program.

In 2020, CLF was pleased to recognize Mr. John Housein, Army Environmental Division, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-9, as CLFs Military Readiness Conservation Awardee.  Mr. Housein was selected as the 2020 recipient in recognition of his years of dedicated service to furthering the REPI mission and for promoting cooperative conservation at all levels of government. John’s vision and leadership have been instrumental to the success of the Army Compatible Use Buffer (ACUB) Program, conserving in-perpetuity over thirty-five thousand acres of private lands, as well as the Army’s Chesapeake Bay Program.
