FCSWCD held 34th Annual awards banquet

LA GRANGE — The Fayette County Soil and Water Conservation District #341 held its 34th Annual Conservation Awards Banquet Feb. 1 at the Fayette County Agricultural Building in La Grange.

Each year, the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board and the Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts sponsor the Texas Conservation Awards Program to recognize and honor those who dedicate themselves and their talents to the conservation and wise use of renewable natural resources.

Conservation Districts are local units of government responsible for conservation work within their boundaries. The district’s role is to increase voluntary conservation among land users. The district and the Natural Resource Conservation Service work together in order to reach the district’s goal of conservation applications. The NRCS is vital to the success of all the Fayette SWCD’s conservation objectives. The conservation awards program provides competition and incentives to expand and improve conservation efforts, resource development, and increase the wise utilization of renewable natural resources.

The directors of the Fayette County Soil and Water Conservation District #341 are Rick Schilling, Lee Fritsch, Howard Frick, Carol Friedrich and C.R. “Bob” Devine. District office manager is Carissa Karisch and Nancy Pietsch is in charge of the local conservation awards program. NRCS employees are Erin Wied Miculka and Glenn Minzenmeyer.
