The Bowland Award

2019 winner: 20th Anniversary of the Chichester Harbour Education Service

The Bowland Award

The Bowland Award, a hen harrier sculpture in bronze, is awarded annually for the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Award is one of our ways of acknowledging the tireless work of people who contribute to making the UK’s AONBs wonderful places to visit, live and work in. Each year we look for a person or a group of people for whom sharing, learning, inspiring is a way of life and who have made an outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of AONBs. Awards are made at a special ceremony at the annual Landscapes for Life Conference.


Since its inception in 1999 the Bowland Award has been awarded to 18 people or projects.
