The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) awarded the Caldwell-Travis Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) the “2022 Friends of NACD District Grant.” With the $2,500 award, the SWCD will host a series of workshops focused on soil health and deep topsoil restoration in the Plum Creek Watershed. The series also aims to create a dialogue on land preservation, farm succession planning, principles of soil health, economics of regenerative agriculture, ecosystem service market development, and conservation easement strategies with producers and landowners in the Plum Creek Watershed.

Details about the events open to the public are forthcoming.
