The Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts celebrated its 75th annual Conservation Partnership Conference on Feb. 25-27 at the Renaissance Hotel in Columbus with the theme “From Dust to Diamonds.”
The Highland Soil and Water District (SWCD) Board of Supervisors and staff joined fellow conservation leaders and partners for this special anniversary event that included a live taping of the Ohio Farm Bureau’s Town Hall Meeting focusing on conservation. During the gala reception held on Tuesday, Feb 27, the Highland SWCD was honored with a special award for being the first district formed in Ohio on April 18, 1942 and celebrating 75 years of conservation excellence.
The 75th Annual Conservation Partnership meeting was a vibrant opportunity to honor the past, treasure the present and shape the future of conservation.
