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!

The 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 mulmer@pikepa.org.

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. Click on the brochure to the left to find out more!!
