Congratulations to Mr. Koopmann and what a great example you are setting for other ranchers and owners of land. Thanks for taking such good care of the land and the wildlife that depends on it.

Tim & family are great folks with a big heart for helping others. Tim has made decades of contributions to the Alameda County Fair, including serving as President of the Fair Association for two terms. Congrats again on the Leopold Conservation Award - and true to your humble style, you noted that many other ranchers are also great stewards of the land...
