The Buena Vista County Soil & Water Conservation District was honored to present the Jerry and Jeanine Meyer family with two windbreak awards.  They received the Iowa Izaak Walton League Windbreak Award and the Buena Vista County Soil & Water Conservation District Windbreak of the Year Award.    

Jeanine Meyer resides north of Alta in Elk Township.  They were chosen for the awards because of the number of rows planted and the care they have taken with the windbreak since planting it in 2004.
