Pike County Conservation District has a podcast for Pike County Residents that want to learn more about our environment.
In our first few episodes, we will discuss the ways that local homes have an impact on the watershed they are in. Topics include private wells and groundwater, best management practices for stormwater, and maintaining an on-lot septic system.
Financial and other support for the Conservation Cast has been provided by the Department of Environmental Protection’s 2019 Environmental Education Grants Program. We hope you tune in to learn about the water, and the world around you right here in NEPA.
