The Paris Landing State Park recently began a 25 acre prarie restoration project. Funded by TDOT, the project will enhance the native biodiversity of the park. Quail Forever/Southeastern Grasslands Initiative partner biologists Brittney Viers and Jeremy French, and QF Farm Bill Biologist, Alex Tamboli, assisted in the drill calibration and prarie planting. The Henry County SCD provided the drill for the planting and is excited to see the future updates on this amazing project!
Happy Earth Day!! Did you know this year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day? The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970 to provide a voice for emerging enivronmental concerns and led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of several important environmental laws, including the National Environmental Education Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. Over 20 millions Americans took to the streets that day to rally for the environment. Although we can't rally together like they did 50 years ago, we can still do our part to protect our environment and impact our future by protecting our natural resources. The NRCS and Henry County SCD is comitted to helping farmers, ranchers, and landowners become even better conservation stewards by providing the tools and assistance they need to protect our natural resources.
