Westmoreland Conservation District Annual Report

Despite rain…and more rain…and perhaps the most rain any of our staff can ever remember falling in one year…we still accomplished a lot for conservation in 2018.

Our just-completed annual report looks at those many accomplishments.

Thanks to all who partnered with us to make so many good things happen in a very challenging year.

If you’d like a printed version of the report, we’d be glad to send one to you.  Just let us know at [email protected] or 724-837-5271.


Small Acts. Big Results.

Wondering what you can do to help conserve Westmoreland County?

Lots! And they’re often not hard or time-consuming at all.

A new District publication offers 70 easy and inexpensive suggestions that make a difference for conservation — from switching to LED light bulbs and monitoring your car’s tire pressure, to recycling your Christmas tree and joining a local conservation organization.

An e-copy of the brochure is on our website (go to Publications, General Reference).

Free printed copies are available at our office (218 Donohoe Road, Greensburg).

“70 Things…” is published as a community service in honor of the District’s 70th Anniversary of Helping People Use Resources Wisely (2019).

Bring your brown bag lunch and join us for any or all of three sessions Noon – 1:30 p.m. at the J. Roy Houston Conservation Center, Greensburg. Presentations will feature innovative projects and products that help to control erosion and sedimentation and manage stormwater.  Tuesdays – November 5, and December 3.
