The Wilson County Soil and Water Conservation District and the National Association of Conservation Districts are celebrating the 58th year of Stewardship Week April 28 through May 5. The theme for this year’s stewardship week is “Where does your water shed?”

The purpose of the Wilson County Soil and Water Conservation District is to create a better understanding of the need for soil and water conservation, and to assist local agricultural producers with conservation and other issues concerning natural resources.

To promote Soil Stewardship Week, Wilson County Soil and Water Conservation District Chairman Pat Moczygemba met with Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and county commissioners April 22 to proclaim April 28 to May 5 as Soil Stewardship Week.

“Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes,” said National Association of Conservation Districts President Earl Garber. “... Every inch of the land on planet Earth is part of a watershed. In the continental United States, there are 2,100 watersheds. ... No matter where you are right now, you are in a watershed.”

Less than 1 percent of all of the water on our planet is fresh water. The average citizen in the United States uses 70 gallons of water every day, and this does not include the water it takes to manufacture the automobiles, clothing, and food we depend on every day.
