Through PACD’s Nonpoint Source Pollution Prevention Educational Mini-grant Program, the Juniata County Conservation District (JCCD) planted 170 trees. The “Lost Creek Landowners Buffer-in-a-Basket” project worked with landowners in the Lost Creek Watershed to plant trees in streamside locations.
A workshop was held in October and trees were distributed to plant as buffers on the landowners property.
