The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is celebrating the 63rd year of Stewardship week April 29 – May 6, 2018. The 2018 Stewardship Week is themed “Watersheds: Our Water, Our Home”
“Clean water is important to everyone,” says National Association of Conservation Districts Past President Earl Garber. “Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes. They cross county, state and national boundaries. Every inch of the land on planet Earth is part of a watershed. In the continental U.S., there are 2,100 watersheds; if we include Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico, the count rises to 2,267. No matter where you are right now, you are in a watershed.” Take time to learn about your local community water supply sources, and volunteer for river, stream or beach clean-up days. You can make a difference!
