With this year’s Soil Stewardship week theme, ‘Soil to Spoon,’ the Pedernales Soil and Water Conservation District is proud to join forces with the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) to celebrate this historical observance which will be officially celebrated April 29-May 6, 2012.
In 1955, the NACD began a national program to encourage Americans to focus on stewardship. The stewardship concept involves a personal and social responsibility including a duty to learn about and improve natural resources for the purpose of using them wisely in order to leave a rich legacy for future generations. This tremendous responsibility lies with all of us.
The program relies on locally led soil and water conservation districts nationwide sharing and promoting stewardship and conservation activities. Districts throughout Texas provide conservation and stewardship field days, programs, workshops and additional outreach efforts throughout their communities to educate citizens about the need to care for soil, water and related renewable natural resources.
