Stewardship Week Promoted
The Lewis and Clark Natural Resources District (LCNRD), in partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD), is celebrating Stewardship Week from April 25 – May 2, 2021, focusing on the theme “Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities.”
LCNRD is a member of NACD, which oversees the annual Stewardship Week program, now in its 66th year. Stewardship Week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation.
“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 LCNRD General Manager, Annette Sudbeck. “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.”
LCNRD can assist you in learning more about trees and the species native to your area. LCNRD can also provide insight on tree planting, care, and maintenance, as well as information on how to protect trees from invasive species.
Free, downloadable Stewardship Week resources celebrating the theme “Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities” 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.
