TOWANDA, Pa. — Bradford County Conservation District received $2,000 to take Corn Stalk Nitrogen Tests, install a no-till garden and help fund next year’s Soil Health Conference.
“Conservation district staff will use this grant funding for adult education programs. Clean water is important to our communities. Working together, we can all do our part to ensure there is enough clean water for future generations,” said Kevin Brown, BCCD.
Education and outreach about the project(s) are expected to begin June. The district expects to have the project work begin no later than June 1 for the no-till garden, September 2019 for the CSNTs and the conference will be held next March 2020.
Thirty-five projects will be funded in 31 of the state’s counties. Projects include stream workshops, agricultural field days, forestry workshops, homeowner workshops and more. For a complete listing of awarded projects, visit https://tinyurl.com/NPS2019-20.
Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
