The Pike/Wayne Conservation Partnership raised $975 at the rain barrel silent auction that was held at this year’s Pike/Wayne Earth Day event!

The money raised will go back to the schools that participated to be used for environmental education.

There is still time to check out some exciting programs that the Partnership is having throughout the spring. Please check them out!

To learn more about the project read below.


2014 Program Listing
Pike/Wayne Conservation Partnership will be hosting a number of educational programs throughout the spring that includes topics such as water conservation, non-point source pollution, best management practices to assist with stormwater management, water quality and testing, native plants of our region, green cleaning, home energy efficiency tips, and each program will provide simple ways to be a responsible steward of our clean water.

Less than 1% of the water in the world is available for fresh drinking water.

 And being that the average hgousehold in the US uses about 250 gallons per day - Every Drop Counts! Rain barrels are one way to collect them.

Rain barrels can assist in reducing stormwater runoff around your home or business, conservce water for later use in gardens and washing, and can lower water bills by reducing metered water usage. You can get your own rain barrel and here's how...

Students in Canaan Christian Academy, Delaware Valley, Honesdale, and Wallenpaupack School Districts designed and painted rain barrels (like the ones pictured to the left).

The Pike County Conservation District, along with the Pike/Wayne Conservation Partnership, was awarded a PA Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Education Grant to help educate high school students on water conservation, the impacts of storm water on a watershed and to promote the use of rainbarrels.
