WCCD receives education grant

A grant is going to help landowners who need some help with erosion control and pollution prevention.

The Warren County Conservation District received a $2,000 grant for an education project.

“Conservation district staff will use this grant funding for an adult education program,” Watershed Specialist Jean Gomory said. “Clean water is important to our communities. Working together, we can all do our part to ensure there is enough clean water for future generations.”

The project will involve a tour of projects in the Youngsville and Pittsfield area, Gomory said. That workshop is expected to take place on Sept. 5.

State-wide, 35 projects — including stream workshops, agricultural field days, forestry workshops, homeowner workshops, and others — will be hosted in 31 counties.

Education and outreach about the projects is expected to begin at the end of August.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. (PACD) 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.
