  3. Please bring your own hand sanitizer and use it before and after touching any surface, such as benches, tables, garbage containers, or other similar surfaces.
  4. Be especially mindful if you are geocaching. Wear disposable gloves and sanitize all surfaces before and after touching. Wash your hands! Do not engage in this activity if you are experiencing any sign of illness.
  5. Keep all pets leashed and under control and come prepared to clean up after your pet.
  6. If you drive to a BCCD conservation area, please observe the number of vehicles in the parking areas. If 50% or more parking spaces are full please consider delaying your visit or going to a different conservation area.

Boone County Conservation District
Nine Volunteers braved the cold and snow at Sewell Conservation Area to help spread the seed of dozens of wildflower species that grow in wet and dry prairie, including Blue Flag Iris, Ohio Goldenrod, and Marsh Marigold, as well as Butterfly Milkweed, Wild Hyacinth, Purple Prairie Clover, and more! Seeding different species in groups like this allows us to establish substantial food resources for native pollinators and locations to collect seed in future years.#wildlife #nature #wildlifeconservation #environment #biodiversity #naturelovers #outdoors #BCCD #adventure #conservation #savetheplanet #biology #ecofriendly #BooneCounty #Illinois #getoutside #conservationinaction #VolunteerTuesday #boonecountyconservationdistrict ...
