|Our Mission||Our Vision|
|The Armstrong Conservation District in cooperation with public and private partners will promote stewardship of our natural resources.||The Communities of Armstrong County guided by the district and partners fulfill the needs of citizens though efficient and responsible natural resource use.|
|Public Service Announcement|
In keeping with the latest directive from the Governor’s office and CD guidelines, your staff at the Armstrong Conservation District are continuing to work full time to deliver the important public services:
- Processing earth disturbance permit applications to ensure that construction projects get to shovel- ready status as soon as possible, so they can move forward once restrictions are lifted around May 1st.
- Providing technical services for farmers so they will qualify for important state and federal agricultural support and aid programs.
- Implementing Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Projects with our Municipal partners to provide for safe and efficient travel throughout Armstrong County.
- Keeping stream stabilization and other funded projects moving so there is protection in place to reduce future flooding.
|H2Oh! on the GO!|
Armstrong Conservation District has launched a new conservation project for the county and other rural counties within the Ohio River Watershed: H2Oh! on the Go! Mobile Environmental Display (MED) – a traveling exhibit, modeled after Carnegie Science Center’s popular H2Oh! Why Our Rivers Matter exhibit, consisting of a trailer and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle designed to educate the public about our valuable natural resources. The Mobile Environmental Display is an education and outreach project intended to reach all age groups over a diversity of educational venues including community event locations, schools, and other public facilities.
Funded by Colcom Foundation with additional funding provided by EQT Corporation for the CNG tow vehicle, visitors to the MED will be able to interact with 10 displays for hands-on scientific enrichment that focus primarily on water education and conservation.
The MED is available from April until October.
