Our Board of Supervisors and Staff are pleased to announce the 2016 Conservation Leaders of the year. We're honoring a diverse set of local leaders this year- from commercial farmers to urban residents and children to elders. One thing is for sure, this year’s recipients are an incredible group whose collective accomplishments are sure to inspire others to take action to make this world a better place.
In the pouring rain, on Thursday, October 13th a group of students from Jackson High School's Green Team finished a year-long project to transform a large, compacted, bare area of soil into a beautiful sustainable landscape.
