Congratulations to Brittney Viers-Scott for being chosen as the 2019 Kentucky Lake chapter's Conservationist of the Year. Brittney has a bachelor's degree and a master's dagree in wildlife science and has worked in the conservation field for many years in both Kentucky and Tennessee. During the last six years in West Tennessee, she has assisted nearly 1,000 landowners, provided guidance on more than 300 Farm Bill contracts and positively impacted more that 10,000 acres with her conservation efforts. Brittney has woked diligently to preserve bobwhite quail and dwindling pollinator species through Farm Bill programs such as EQIP and CRP. She recently accepted a position with the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative based at Austin Peay State University, in a partnership with NRCS and Quail Forever, to bring back the rare and declining native grasslands that historically blanketed much of the southeastern United States. We are proud of Brittney and her unwavering passion for conservation.
