The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Stewardship Week is one of the largest national programs to promote natural resource conservation. Celebrated annually since 1955 between the last Sunday in April and the first Sunday in May, NACD Stewardship Week reminds us of our individual responsibilities to care for natural resources.
The 2019 theme is "Life In The Soil: Dig Deeper". Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals a healthy you. Don’t treat your soil like dirt! This non-renewable resource is paramount for our survival on this planet.
As part of Stewardship Week, NACD sponsors a poster contest that is organized through the local SWCDs. Check out our Contests page for more information!
Whereas fertile soil and clean water provide us with our
daily sustenance, and
Whereas effective conservation practices have helped
provide us a rich standard of living, and
Whereas our security depends upon healthy soil and clean
Whereas stewardship calls for each person to help
conserve these precious resources,
Therefore, I do hereby proclaim
April 28 to May 5, 2019
Soil & Water Stewardship Week
