White Pine saplings handed out for Conservation District Week
MILL HALL — Recognized by both the Pennsylvania State House and Senate, April 18-24, has been declared “Conservation District Week.”
The Clinton County Conservation District consists of staff and volunteer directors who work hard at addressing conservation concerns in our community. They are your neighbors who are working to prevent pollution in your backyard. Conservation District Week is an opportunity to celebrate and showcase projects here in Clinton County and across the state.
To celebrate Conservation District week, the District has teamed with WSQV to give away 200 white pine saplings to local residents and they are also coordinating with local schools to distribute tree seedlings and booklets on healthy forests and healthy communities to thousands of local students.
The Clinton County Conservation District invites residents to help them celebrate Conservation District Week by planting a tree, hanging a bird feeder, installing a low-flow showerhead, taking time to recycle or repurpose items, installing a bat box, planting a pollinator garden or by just parking your car and choosing to walk when possible.
