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 30 – May 7, 2023, focusing on the theme “One Water” and educating about watersheds.
A watershed is an area of land that channels rainfall and snowmelt to creeks, streams, and rivers, eventually leading to outflow points such as reservoirs, bays, and the ocean. Those bodies of water are all connected, so every drop that falls becomes part of “One Water.” A lot of the water we use and drink every day comes from water in the ground. All land across the entire earth is made up of watersheds. We all live in a watershed. We share the water in our watershed with other people, animals, and plants because… it is all “One Water.”
LCNRD is a member of NACD, which sponsors the annual Stewardship Week program, now in its 68th year. Stewardship Week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation. LCNRD provides educational materials designed by NACD on the theme of “One Water” at no cost to churches, schools, and other organizations.
Free, downloadable Stewardship Week resources celebrating the theme “One Water” are available on NACD’s website at https://www.nacdnet.org/store/. For more information about Stewardship Week and conservation, contact LCNRD at 402-254-6758.
