Soil Stewartship Week

Celebrated last Sunday in April until first Sunday in May - Sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts.

Education is a critical element of the conservation effort at the local, state and national levels. Educating youth ensures that the next generation will be wise stewards of America's natural resources. Helping today's adults and students understand the need for effective conservation practices builds on the conservation legacy. Through NACD’s Stewardship and Education efforts, we assist districts extend the reach of their education programs.

Stewardship Program
For more than 50 years, NACD has sponsored a national program to encourage Americans to focus on stewardship. The program relies on locally-led conservation districts sharing and promoting stewardship and conservation activities. While the program encourages good stewardship year round, Stewardship Week is officially celebrated from the last Sunday in April to the first Sunday in May. The theme for NACD's 2015 Stewardship Week is: "Loal Heroes - Your Hardworking Pollinators"
