GROUNDWORK is the district's award winning newsletter. It is published 6x a year and covers a wide range of district activities.

The GROUNDWORK will keep you up-to-date on local watershed council activities, upcoming workshops and events, NRCS and FSA Farm Programs, gardening tips, and local native wildflowers and plants. Every year, the Sept/Oct issue carries the District's Tree and Shrub Sale List.

Businesses interested in supporting conservation can place a Sponsor Ad with the GROUNDWORK. Cost is $75 a year. When an ad is placed it is accompanied by an article titled Sponsor in the Spotlight which introduces the business and the services they offer. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, click on the link to the right and let us know.
