The Pennsylvania State Senate and the House of Representatives declared May 3-9, 2020 as “Conservation District Week.” During this week, district offices will hold conference calls and virtual meetings with legislators.
Each county has a conservation district office except Philadelphia. These volunteer directors and staff live and work in your community. They address local conservation problems. These are your neighbors who are working to prevent pollution. That deserves to be celebrated!
“Conservation District Week is an opportunity to showcase conservation district projects,” said Brenda J. Shambaugh, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts. “District staff work every day to improve the lives of our Commonwealth’s citizens.”
Conservation districts thank Governor Tom Wolf and members of the PA House and Senate for supporting the districts through the state budget.
