THANK YOU! Hancock SWCD supervisors and staff appreciate everyone that helped make the 69th Annual Meeting a success! We had delicious food by Kathy's Korner, Vaun Wickerham was our emcee and had a really good and funny presentation by comedian Adam Garman. Appreciate Representative Sprague, Commissioner Mark Gazarek and Commissioner Brian Robertson for taking time from their busy schedules to attend!

NRCS, Soil Scientists Chris Davis, shared an interesting video at the Hancock SWCD 69th Annual Meeting last night. Sadly the internet did not let us see the entire video! Here is the link if you would like to watch this good video: . Thanks, Chris!

Lye Creek Watershed Grant - **UPDATE** - We have expended all funds in this grant due to the great conservation efforts of landowners and farmers! We do have a waiting list for those who would still like to participate if more funding becomes available. The grant was for landowners and farmers who own property or farm property in the Lye Creek watershed. Several practices were available that will help reduce sediment and phosphorus load and runoff volume to Lye Creek, the Blanchard River and ultimately the Western Basin of Lake Erie. Thank you for the great conservation efforts and sign-up!
