Winter Ag School 2024: SASWCD is interested in hearing from you on topics you would like to learn more about that may be a good fit for our annual Winter Ag School series. If you have a topic of interest, please share with us!
PROJECT CANOPY GRANT - The SASWCD has completed two street tree-related projects through the Project Canopy Grant, a community forestry program of the Maine Forest Service. The initial street tree survey led to a planting project of 15 trees in three designated neighborhoods. The projects were focused on looking to the future for Houlton's street trees and we hope it is the start of many more trees being planted!
MEDUXNEKEAG RIVER WATERSHED RESTORATION PHASE III - The SASWCD has received a conditional award from the DEP for a Phase III project for the Meduxnekeag Watershed. This project, funded through the Clean Water Act section 319, will continue working with livestock and crop farmers in the watershed to promote soil health practices, as well as provide educational and outreach opportunities. Stayed tuned for confirmation and the start of the project next year.
