MEMORANDUM

Posted: February 22, 2024 01:42 PM
From: Senator Gene Yaw and Sen. Elder A. Vogel, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Recognizing “Conservation District Week” in Pennsylvania
 
We intend to introduce a Senate Resolution designating April 28 through May 4, 2024, as “Conservation District Week” in Pennsylvania recognizing our county conservation districts.

In 1945, Pennsylvania state legislators recognized the need to support grass-roots conservation efforts. As a result, the Conservation District Law was passed, and county conservation districts were created. Today there is a conservation district established in every Pennsylvania county except Philadelphia.

Conservation districts implement a variety of programs and provide assistance for a range of issues unique to their county, such as agricultural land preservation, the Chesapeake Bay Program, environmental education, and wildlife management, just to name a few.

Districts also work with many partners including government agencies, private organizations, businesses, and others to accomplish their mission of supporting and helping landowners to conserve natural resources. They have made immeasurable contributions to our state through its programs, which are designed to enhance the quality of life for all.

We hope you will join us in supporting this Senate Resolution designating April 28 through May 4, 2024, as “Conservation District Week” in Pennsylvania.
