The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District (HCSWCD) announces its annual meeting scheduled for Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in the O.V. Winks building, 2003 Pleasant St.

In celebration of its recent 50th Anniversary, the HCSWCD is re-instituting an evening meeting and a chili supper. “We are excited to throw it back this year to get back to our roots and rekindle those conservation feelings from the past. We hope to see some of our longstanding partners-in-conservation within the community at the dinner along with our new partners,” said Ginger Davis, Conservation Administrator. The meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is FREE. This year will feature various local exhibitors and a speaker from The Nature Conservancy to discuss the importance of a local Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA).

Attendees at the annual meeting will be presented with a summary report of 2018 SWCD activities and a vote will be held to elect a supervisor for the one open position on the SWCD board. The SWCD Board of Supervisors Election Candidate is Dustin Forrer. Nominations from the floor will also be accepted.
