SOIL AND WATER TO RECEIVE NATIONAL AWARD
The Soil and Water Conservation Department will receive the 2011 Earth Team
Award, from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS), during the N.C. Association of Soil and Water Conservation
Districts’ annual meeting, January 8-10, 2012, in Greensboro. The award
recognizes the best volunteer programs in NRCS offices nationwide.
Receiving more volunteer hours than any other conservation district in the
state, Wake Soil and Water Conservation engaged skilled volunteers to
assist with technical and administrative duties throughout the year. This
volunteer support helped the department, as an interim measure, meet the
increasing demand from residents for agricultural and natural resources
conservation services. Staff Contact: Dale Threatt-Taylor, Soil and Water
Conservation Department, 919-250-1068
