WCD 2013 Annual Report coverWhat conservation work is happening in your community?

Check out our new annual report and see.

We think you’ll be amazed at the number and variety of conservation projects under way in all parts of our county – from streambank fencing on farms in Derry Township…to erosion control at the Routes 119/819 cloverleaf project in Mount Pleasant Township.

New this year: Full-color maps, graphs and charts, as well as prose summaries of the major projects, give you a quick look at how and where the District and its partners are working to make sure everyone in our county can enjoy stable soils, healthy forests, clean streams, productive farms, and sustainable communities.
