Soil and water district honors conservation week
NATCHEZ — The Adams County Soil and Water Conservation District celebrated soil and water stewardship week last week.
As a part of the Natchez Community for a number of years, the district wants to remind area residents that each of us has a connection to natural resources.
The National Association of Conservation Districts celebrated the 59th year of stewardship week. The 2014 stewardship week was themed, “DIG DEEPER: Mysteries in the soil.”
Virginia S. Salmon acts as chairman for Adams County Soil and Water Conservation District.
The district was formed to assist people in Natchez and Adams County with technical, financial and educational resources; whatever their source, and focus or coordinate them so that they meet the needs of the local land user for conservation of soil, water and related resources.
Stewardship week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation. NACD represents the nation’s 3,000 conservation districts, which were established to encourage conservation across the country.
