County Calls on Citizens to be Good Stewards of Land, Water:

Proclaims April 26-May 3 as Soil & Water Stewardship Week


Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Commissioners Court has proclaimed the week of April 26-May 3 as Soil & Water Stewardship Week in Hays County and calls upon all citizens of Hays County to help conserve these precious resources. During the week the Hays County Soil & Water Conservation District, based in San Marcos, will be participating with other soil and water districts across Texas to encourage personal and social responsibility.

According to the proclamation, effective conservation practices have helped provide us with a rich standard of living and our security depends upon healthy soil and clean water. Each person has the power to conserve natural resources and improve the world.

Promoted by the National Association of Conservation Districts on a national level, the districts help educate youth and adults in wise use of natural resources through programs, workshops and field trips.

The Conservation District helps educate youth and adults in wise use of natural resources through program workshops and field trips. The HCSWC is holding a public working group meeting May 6, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Hays County farmers and ranchers better conserve on-farm natural resources. The meeting will be at the district’s office, 326 Cheatham Street, Suite 102, San Marcos. For more information contact Kathryn Brady, district conservationist, at 512-392-4050.
