Promoting Clean Streams…Stable Soils…Healthy Forests…Productive Farms…and Sustainable Communities throughout Westmoreland County, PA
For 70 years, the Westmoreland Conservation District has been successfully encouraging loggers, earthmovers, developers, farmers, and others whose daily work directly affects our natural resources to voluntarily incorporate conservation practices in their projects, and so protect the quality of the soil, forests, and streams. The District’s ability to elicit this voluntary care of our natural resources is extremely high because its approach is personal, often one-on-one, and because the actions it recommends are both proven and practical.
