---- — The Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District has been part of the county for over 50 years, and “each of us has a connection to natural resources,” reports coordinator Chris Fox.

The National Association of Conservation Districts is celebrating its 59th Stewardship Week April 27-May 4. Its theme is “Dig Deeper: Mysteries in the Soil,” he reveals.

“Soil is an essential natural resource that all of us depend on each and every day,“ says NACD President Earl Garber. “Your local conservation district is working with local landowners to assist in a variety of projects and outreach to improve soil health both now and in the long term.”
