Fall has arrived in the rain garden - some of the flowers have set seed pods, and others are drying out. A few of the Purple Poppy Mallows are hanging on, but the big story is the explosion of Asters blooming now - and they are attracting lots of pollinators! Many of the dried seed heads and stalks will be left standing through the winter, providing a food source & shelter for birds and beneficial insects. Be sure to visit the rain garden in every season!
The Annual Meeting of the Daviess County Soil & Water Conservation District was held on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Following a delicious meal from Carla's Catering, Philip Flint was unanimously re-elected to another 3-year term as a Supervisor on the SWCD Board. A large crowd was on hand as the SWCD honored local members of the farming community. See all the award winners here.
Everyone enjoyed the amazing and astounding feats of magic performed by Josh Cecil, "Cecil Magic"! Thanks also to the Washington High School FFA Chapter for helping serve the meal.
