Sherman County Soil and Water Conservation District
Sherman County SWCD Watershed Education Programs
In 2007 the Sherman County SWCD created the Watershed Education Reserve Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide education and outreach in natural resources and conservation for activities associated with the Soil & Water Conservation District. The fund was established to provide the opportunity to establish and expand a program with local schools and the community. To date, two programs have been created using these funds; the Watershed Education Incentive Program and the Sherman County SWCD Scholarship.
Watershed Education Incentive Program
The Watershed Education Incentive Program is to provide financial resources for local conservation education including workshops, demonstrations and youth conservation projects; to provide technical resources for implementation of education projects that will benefit Sherman County residents and resources; and to assist with worthwhile projects that don't fit traditional funding sources.
Applicants can apply for up to $2,000. Information and application are below.
