Three Rivers Soil and Water Conservation District is celebrating the 66th year of National Association of Conservation Districts Soil and Water Stewardship Week from April 25 – May 2, 2021. The theme of 2021 Stewardship Week is “Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities.” Stewardship Week is typically the last Sunday in April through the first Sunday in May and is designed to educate different generations on conservation and preserving natural resources.
“Educating the public about the importance of our connection to our natural resources in our daily lives is an essential part of what conservation districts advocate for in their communities,” said Three Rivers SWCD Chairman, Lloyd Mundie. Trees and forests are critical to providing clean air and water, healthy soil, shade, abundant wildlife habitat, jobs and valuable products we use every day.
Conservation districts have a long-standing history of working with state and private forest owners in helping promote and safeguard our nation’s forested lands.
Free, downloadable Stewardship Week resources celebrating the theme “Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities” are available for students, scout and 4 – H groups, and churches on NACD’s website at https://www.nacdnet.org/store/.
