BCCD is in search of avid birders to assist staff in conducting surveys in our conservation areas! You don’t have to be an expert; if you have particular interest and knowledge in bird identification, we’d be happy to have you accompany staff in the field for an informal hike through high quality sites and project areas. All findings will help guide habitat management therein. If you’re interested, send us a message or tell a birder you know!!
Seed Savers and Baker Creek heirloom seeds are available for purchase at the Boone County Conservation District. Save the cost of shipping and buy your seeds at the Roger D Gustafson Nature Center.
Proceeds from the seed sales benefit the Heirloom Garden Program.
