Pike County Conservation District Helps
Dingman- Delaware Elementary School Build Outdoor Classroom

Dingman-Delaware Elementary School (DDES) constructed a shade structure to add to their outdoor classroom by utilizing grant funds received from the Pike County Conservation District. Each year the District awards Environmental Education grants to school classrooms or youth organizations to complete projects that complement the conservation mission of the District. The DDES structure is located between the elementary and middle schools for use by classes from both schools. Dave Koretz, fourth grade teacher and Head teacher at DDES, took the lead on coordinating the building of the outdoor classroom. The project also received funding and assistance from the PA Game Commission, the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Girl Scouts to construct a path and install a native plant garden.

District Welcomes Hemlock Farms Conservancy as a
New Nominating Organization

At the November Pike County Conservation District Board meeting the Board approved a petition by Hemlock Farms Conservancy, a non-profit land trust organization, to become a nominating organization for the District .The District Board approved the petition and sent a recommendation to the State Conservation Commission (SCC) for final approval. The SCC approved the petition on November 19, 2015. By becoming a nominating organization the Conservancy will play an integral role in shaping the future of Pike County.


Nominating organizations provide a vital link between various community groups and the Conservation District.  This is especially important given the public's increased concern for environmental issues.  Nominating organizations have the opportunity to nominate individuals for the Board of Directors of the Pike County Conservation District. These nominated individuals can become District Directors or Associate Directors.   Directors shape critical decisions about how Pike County manages our community’s natural wealth- soils, forests and woodlands, lakes and wetlands, rivers and streams, and drinking water supplies.

The District welcomes the Hemlock Farms Conservancy. The District also thanks all of our nominating organizations who participate in the important process of nominating individuals to serve the community and oversee the natural resources of Pike County.
