Public Outreach/Events from Cuyahoga SWCD
The Cuyahoga County Soil & Water Conservation District offers public outreach and events for the public, which are listed below:
Native seed and plant sales
We sell native seeds all year long and the Spring native plant kit sale went great. The page is open for the Fall sale (orders are due by July 17)
Virtual Arbor Day
Cuyahoga SWCD is a member of the Cleveland Tree Coalition and we have been creating videos, blogs etc. to join in the week long activities. The annual Arbor Day celebration is going online this year due to the#Covid19pandemic. We will have a whole host of virtual Arbor Day activities planned for next week (April 19-25). Please like the Cleveland Tree Coalition Facebook page, where we will be sharing events, and share own photos, videos, and posts using the hashtag #ArborDayCLE
Individual Acts of Conservation
We may be keeping away from each other, but TOGETHER we can still make a difference for our local soil, water, wildlife and neighborhoods. See our Individual Acts of Conservation pagefor how you can report back on all the good you are doing for our environment. This is also a part of a virtual Earth Day celebration we are joining with other agencies.
We are hosting a virtual teachers workshop from April 24 – May 8. It will cover 13 hours of training and we are offering 1 graduate credit. Subjects include Project WET, Project Learning Tree, and Climate Change.
Let the Flare See the Air!
We need YOU to help us save trees. Ever since the practice of volcano mulching came on the scene, we are losing hundreds of trees a year. We want to identify locations where this is happening and assist them in fixing the problem and make better choices in the future. This officially launches next Thursday during Arbor Day week, but take a look now!
Ohio Native Plant Month
We are in the middle of the first Ohio Native Plant month. Each day we are posting a native plant of the day on our facebook page. We also have a great video on“Native Plants in My Garden” featuring 5 native plants in my garden and what conditions are needed so they grow successfully.
