Conservation District Dinner Celebrates Water Conservation Education
Each fall the Pike County Conservation District Board of Directors takes time to celebrate the natural resources of Pike County. This year’s celebration will focus on our exceptional water resources – what we have and how you can help to protect them. The celebration will be held at the Lords Valley Country Club, Lords Valley, PA on Friday, November 14, 2014 at 6:00pm.
Pike County is extraordinarily blessed with clean water resources. Vacationers and residents alike enjoy our water resources year round. Our lakes, rivers and streams are filled with these admirers fishing, swimming and canoeing. These clean water habitats also support a vast array of wildlife.
The District plays a key role in the protection and conservation of our water resources through education and monitoring efforts. The District’s Watershed Specialist Vinnie Cordova and Administrative Manager Michele Ulmer will provide an interesting overview of the water quality and quantity programs currently in place and discuss ways that you can actively participate in water conservation and protection. The highlight of the evening will be a rain barrel auction! The District’s very own Christina Spizuoco is designing and painting a rain barrel that will be part of a Silent Auction for this Annual Dinner celebration! You must be present at the dinner to participate in the auction. Proceeds from the sale of the rain barrel will go toward the District’s Environmental Education Program.
This Annual dinner event is open to the public. Cost for dinner is $35.00 per person, payable to the Pike County Conservation District. Please RSVP before November 7, 2014 at (570) 226-8220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
