To The Daily Sun,
The Belknap County Conservation District (BCCD) appreciates the many letters of support and those that spoke on our behalf during the Belknap County Convention process for the 2015 budget. It is clear that many Belknap County residents recognize the importance of conserving soil and water resources in retaining the health of our environment and economy in the Lakes Region. As former BCCD Director Jan Hooper suggested to the convention, the so-called "outside agencies" are really supporting agencies which provide vital services to the county and its towns and residents.
BCCD would also like to thank the Belknap County Commissioners for their generous offer to co-locate the Conservation District and UNH Cooperative Extension at the county courthouse. This move will provide better access to our services than our current location, facilitate our cooperative efforts with Extension, and save the county money.
Our mission is to help landowners, communities and other organizations conserve soil, water and the natural resources of Belknap County. BCCD achieves its mission by:
• Identifying critical natural resource conservation issues and needs.
• Initiating projects that demonstrate conservation best practices.
• Delivering conservation information and training.
• Creating access to technical and financial resources that enable conservation action.
From our annual plant sale, to stream restoration projects, to community workshops on protecting water resources, to assistance with grants to towns and landowners, BCCD is committed to serving our county. We invite anyone who is interested in natural resource conservation to participate in our programs and to learn more about what we do. Our website is at www.belknapccd.org/
We are heartened by the support provided by the County Board of Commissioners and the public and look forward to continuing to serve the people of Belknap County.
