LEWIS AND CLARK NATURAL RESOURCES DISTRICT PROMOTES STEWARDSHIP WEEK
The Lewis and Clark Natural Resources District (LCNRD), in partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD), is celebrating Stewardship Week from April 24 – May 1, 2022, focusing on the theme “Healthy Soil, Healthy Life.”
LCNRD is a member of NACD, which oversees the annual Stewardship Week program, now in its 67th year. Stewardship Week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation.
“It is important that each of us recognize where our food comes from and the farmers and ranchers who are dedicated to using responsible land-management practices to ensure a sustainable food supply and healthy land and soil for future generations,” said LCNRD General Manager, Annette Sudbeck. “Healthy soils are the foundation for all life on Earth. Soil is an important resource for everything from human health to agriculture to water filtration. The imperative benefit of healthy soil is food production. Healthy soils also give us clean air and water, plentiful crops and forests, diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes.”
LCNRD can assist you in learning more about how healthy, fertile soil and clean water benefits your area. LCNRD can also provide insight on effective soil conservation practices.
