Working to protect Clarion County’s natural resources.
DIRT, GRAVEL, AND LOW VOLUME ROADS
Clarion County’s Dirt and Gravel Road program provides funding to townships and eligible applicants to eliminate stream pollution caused by dust and sediment from unpaved roads.
EROSION AND SEDIMENT
Erosion and Sedimentation (E & S) controls are used in instances where soil is being disturbed by development, timber harvesting or by highway development.
The Conservation District can provide educational assistance to the agriculture community on the best management practices for handling nutrients on farms to minimize water pollution.
The District assists with educational activities including local workshops for adults as well as assisting with high school educational events such as Earth Day and the Envirothon.
A watershed is a large basin where all precipitation that reaches the ground travels across the topography to the lowest drainage point. CCD works to address environmental concerns in the local watersheds.
Mill Creek Coalition
From its inception in 1938, the Clarion Conservation District’s goal has been the promotion of wise land use in agriculture and the developing community through education or technical assistance. Over the years, meeting the needs of the residents of Clarion County has expanded the role of the District into areas of water quality, erosion and sediment control, environmental education, dirt and gravel road maintenance and nutrient management. The duties delegated by the State Conservation Commission are administered by a volunteer board of directors. The board members, a vital part of this organization, offer years of experience in agriculture, business, science, technology, education and public policy.
