Pike County Conservation District Open House

556 Route 402, Blooming Grove

The Pike County Conservation District (PCCD) would like to invite all residents and visitors of Pike County to an Open House at the PCCD office, to be held on November 9th from 4-6pm. PCCD is celebrating the recent expansion of its outreach program, and introducing Rebecca Holler as the new Education and Outreach Coordinator for PCCD.

At the open house Rebecca will be exhibiting fun activities, which demonstrate how everyone can protect local streams and the surrounding environment. The open house is a family friendly event.

PCCD was formed in 1956 to conserve our natural resources, and completes projects focusing on dirt and gravel roads, controlling erosion and sedimentation in streams, water quality monitoring, invasive species, and environmental education. These programs are all designed to help the environment and the residents of Pike County.
