PA Conservation Districts Highlight Vital Services That Kept Pennsylvania Running In 2020

The state’s 66 conservation districts worked through the COVID pandemic in 2020 to provide vital functions in the Commonwealth that kept the economy going, people working, our streams clean and our communities healthy. 

They reviewed and approved permit applications to keep projects going.

Staff from conservation districts worked with farmers and construction companies to make sure practices were in place to limit pollution.

Conservation districts helped invest funding to fix dirt and gravel roads throughout the state that provided jobs and prevented pollution from entering our waterways.

They held education and training programs in new ways for landowners, farmers and students to become better environmental stewards.
