The 2010 Stewardship Week is themed “Conservation Habits – Healthy Habitats” and encourages citizens, schools and communities to develop and maintain habitat areas using good conservation practices.
Keith Blewett acts as the Joint Chairman for the Logan County Conservation Districts. The Districts were formed to assist people in Logan County with conserving water, soil, forests, wildlife and related natural resources. During Stewardship Week, Logan County Conservation Districts will provide a copy of the educational brochure that you can use in your activities as well as other related materials that are available at www.nacdnet.org
If any church or civic group would like a program on this year’s theme “Conservation Habits- Healthy Habitats” please contact Dianna Penrod at 270-726-1371.

“Being good stewards of our natural resources at home and in our communities is an important task for each citizen. When we think about protecting and managing our natural resources, we can provide healthy habitats for the ecosystems on our planet,” says NACD President Steve Robinson. “Each of us can make a difference by developing habitat areas in our own backyards, our schools or in our communities.”
