Stewardship Week honors work of conservation districts

Stewardship Week will be celebrated April 25 through May 2, 2010.

Stewardship Week is one of the world's largest conservation-related observances. Since 1955, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) and OACD have sponsored the national Stewardship Week program.

During the week, local conservation districts work with media outlets, communities, faith-based groups and local schools to promote the concept of stewardship. The concept involves personal and social responsibility, including a duty to learn about and improve natural resources so we use them wisely and leave a rich legacy for future generations.
