Conservation District Dinner
Celebrates Water Resources
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.
The highlight of the evening will be the rain barrel auction!
District’s very own Tina Spizuoco designed and
painted 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

Do You Know Your Watershed Address?
PCCD has created a brochure and
an interactive watershed map so you can easily identify your
watershed along with some interesting facts about the water
resources in that watershed.
A watershed is an area of land across which water, and the
sediment and dissolved materials it contains, flow on their
way to a single common outlet- like a stream, lake or river.
