Clarion Conservation District Holds Workshop on Protecting Water Resources

Tricia Mazik, Resource Technician for the Clarion Conservation District, presents on local watersheds in Clarion County and the forms of non-point source pollution that may negatively impact them.

On March 26, 2022, the Clarion Conservation District held a workshop at Clarion Farms titled, “Protecting Water Resources from Pesticides and Fertilizers.”

The district educated gardeners, landowners, and homeowners on the effects of pesticide and fertilizer application on water quality and informed them of natural alternatives to conventional pesticides and fertilizers. Forty-one people attended the event.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
