Soil and Water Stewardship Week Is April 24 - May 1, 2022
As a part of Meeker County for over 70 years, the Meeker Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) wants to remind you that each of us has a connection to natural resources. The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is celebrating the 67th National Stewardship week April 24 – May 1, 2022. The 2022 Stewardship Week is themed "Healthy Soil: Healthy Life."
Healthy soils are the foundation for all life on Earth. Soil is an important resource for everything from human health to agriculture to water filtration. The imperative benefit of healthy soil is food production. Healthy soils also give us clean air and water, plentiful crops and forests, diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes. It is important that each of us recognize where our food comes and the farmers and ranchers who are dedicated to using responsible land-management practices to ensure a sustainable food supply and healthy land and soil for future generations.
