Support local conservation: celebrate conservation district week

The Pennsylvania State Senate, the House of Representatives, and the McKean County Commissioners have declared April 15 to April 21, 2018 as “Conservation District Week.” The dates coincide with Earth Day (April 22nd) events and celebrations.
There are 66 conservation district offices across the Commonwealth in every county except Philadelphia. These offices have volunteer directors and staff who focus on local natural resource protection. We are your neighbors who are working to ensure there is enough clean water. We also promote healthy soil for the future. That is something to celebrate!

“We are excited to celebrate Conservation District Week,” said Kerry Fetter, McKean County Conservation District Board President. “We must support our conservation districts so they can protect our local areas, streams, and natural resources.”

During Conservation District Week, offices across the state will be celebrating with a variety of activities including Earth Day and Arbor Day programs, seedling sales, sponsoring local Envirothons, and much more. The McKean County Conservation District is kicking off spring environmental education programs with the first My Growing Tree school presentation in Port Allegany this Friday to celebrate. All of these events will show the projects districts work on every day that promote good stewardship of our natural resources. Working together, citizens can ensure there is enough funding for conservation districts. Please encourage conservation by thanking your legislators for providing state funds supporting conservation district programs and projects.

For more information, please contact the McKean County Conservation District located at 17137 Route 6 in Smethport, by calling 814-887-4001, by emailing conservation@mckeancountypa.org. Visit the MCCD website at www.mckeanconservation.com for information on a variety of programs and activities.
