LAEPP

Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program

The Ross Soil and Water Conservation District is a local sponsor under the Clean Ohio Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP). This means the Ohio Department of Agriculture Office of Farmland Preservation can partner with Ross County landowners and the Ross Soil and Water Conservation District to permanently preserve Ohio farms. Contact the district for more information or visit the Farmland Preservation website for more information.

Logging Training at Scioto Trails

These "fellers" attended logging training at Scioto Trails. JT Flowers, Ben Givens and Chris Pancake attended the Ohio Forestry Association Master Logging class this week. Master Loggers do a lot to prevent soil erosion during and after a logging operation. Timber owners can file a voluntary Timber Harvest Plan with the Ross SWCD. Contact the District for more information.

Augmented Reality Sandbox at Unioto

Thank you to Unioto Middle School science teachers Olivia Muntz and Esmeralda Kight for inviting the Soil & Water Conservation District to demonstrate principles of topography with the District's Augmented Reality Sandbox. Julie Kyle and Chris Pancake met with students in small groups to review topographical maps and then students designed their own landscapes with the interactive AR Sandbox.
