Spring Plant Sale UPDATE
We have decided to take a year off from our Spring Plant Sale this year – but we hope to be back next year! If you have a conservation project or stream buffer planting, we can still provide assistance to place special orders for trees and shrubs. Call us at 802-424-3149. If you’d still like to take advantage a full plant sale, please visit our neighbors at the Orleans County Conservation District or download their catalog and order form here.
Hydroseeder Share Program Launched
The towns of Danville, Ryegate, Groton and Walden have joined our Hydroseeder Share Program. The program involves four towns sharing a grant-funded hydroseeder to help treat ditches and roadsides – speeding up maintenance and ensuring good cover on bare ground to prevent sediment runoff to streams and rivers. The program is funded by the State of Vermont’s Clean Water Initiative and was coordinated by a partnership with the Lamoille, Essex and Caledonia County Conservation Districts. With hydroseeders costing between $26,000 and $33,000, this program only costs towns $500 to join and $200/year after the first year. Interested? Call 748-3885 x110 for more information.
Caledonia County NRCD Board Meetings
Every second Wednesday at 4:00pm
Open to the Public!
Conservation Districts are local subdivisions of state government (municipal organizations) under Vermont’s Soil Conservation Act cooperating with landowners and municipalities to apply conservation practices to the land. The Caledonia County Conservation District sponsors and coordinates technical and financial assistance to address water quality, stormwater runoff, erosion, soil quality, watershed planning and conservation education. Conservation Districts provide a unique and powerful vehicle for landowners to become involved in influencing local conservation work and state programs. Our board meetings are held at 481 Summer Street in St. Johnsbury at the second floor conference room.
