2014 Conservation Resolutions
Here at Benton Soil & Water Conservation District we focus on conservation – well, a lot! And it turns out that our partners are taking steps for conservation too. At our holiday gathering on Friday the 20th, party-goers shared their conservation resolutions for 2014. Over fifty resolutions were made by our staff, board members and guests.
These resolutions are representative of the dominant themes:
- Drive less, bike more.
- Support local farmers.
- Grow gardens, make compost.
- Grow more veggies/eat less meat.
- Fight weeds/plant natives.
- Buy less/buy local/repurpose.
- Travel less/enjoy Corvallis and the river more.
- Conserve water and energy.
If you didn’t make it to the holiday gathering, you can still send us your conservation resolution by email or phone 541-753-7208. Make a resolution and take a step for conservation!
