Conservation District Week is April 24 - 30!
Did you know that each county in Pennsylvania has a conservation district office except Philadelphia? These offices have volunteer directors and staff who focus on local conservation issues. These are your neighbors who are working to ensure there is enough clean water. They also make sure we have healthy soil for the future. That is something to celebrate!
