We hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving holiday with much for which to be thankful.
The Board of Directors is thankful for your support and thankful for the work of the District staff.
We have wonderful news to share which adds to our thankfulness. The National Association of Conservation Districts has awarded the Friends of Wake SWCD with the 2013 Friend of Conservation award.
The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the conservation of our nation’s natural resources. It will be presented at the NACD Annual Meeting in February and we hope to send both our founding chair, Robin Hammond, and our current chair, Grace Lawrence, to accept the award.
We wish you safe travels and wonderful time with family and friends this Thanksgiving.
