The safety of the residents of Hamilton County and our staff is our highest priority. The District office will remain open and will continue to offer our services. However, we are modifying some of our protocols and events to best benefit the safety of our residents and staff.
Plan Review and Inspections: The earthwork permitting processes will continue uninterrupted. We will limit the number of our onsite meetings to a minimum and practice “social distancing” when we inspect sites.
Caring for Our Watersheds: Caring for Our Watersheds is still being evaluated. It is highly unlikely that we will have an in-person final competition. We are still working out details with our sponsor Nutrien. All the participants will be notified about the process via email.
The Rain Barrel Art Project: The rain barrel art project has been postponed indefinitely. Artists are urged to continue working on the barrels. We will do our best to work out the logistics of dropping off the barrels and orchestrating an online auction as soon as we have more clarity surrounding the situation.
Live Staking Event: The Live Staking Event scheduled on April 4, 2020, has canceled and may be rescheduled on a future date. The Live Staking event scheduled for May 16, 2020, is still on our calendar and will be evaluated as we have more clarity surrounding the situation.
Soil Test Kits: The District will continue to distribute the Soil Test Kits from Penn State University. For the convenience and safety of our patrons and staff, we will temporarily mail a maximum of two (2) soil test kits to any individual that is a resident of Hamilton County at no additional cost. Residents may request soil test kits via mail until April 30 by using the "contact" tab on our website.
Library Programs, Classroom Programs, and Meetings: All meetings and programs will be evaluated on a case-by-case situation by our staff and will be rescheduled if necessary.
We look forward to servicing your conservation needs. Please feel free to contact the District office with your questions or concerns.
