Additional District Funding for 2015 – CACD is waiting to hear on the progress on CACD’s recommended increase to the Conservation Districts’ 2015 Direct Assistance funding in the amount of $92,053.00. In March, the motion was passed by the JBC by a 6-0 vote. The funds are now in the long-bill, which is still being looked at and is largely influenced by the 2016 budget. Remember, this was a 2014 CACD membership driven request. We are cautiously hopeful!
2015 CO Envirothon – The CO Envirothon’s 2015 Steering and Program Committees are getting ready for the May 14 -15 competition to be held at Cole Park in Alamosa. We are very excited to have eighteen teams registered as of the April 15th deadline. CO Envirothon is CACD’s statewide natural resource competition for high school students, 4-H and FFA groups.
