MEDIA ADVISORY: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Conservation Day at the Capitol set for March 23, 2015



Drought mitigation, food production, access to clean water-healthy soils and streams are vital to a resilient and prosperous Oklahoma.

Everyone is invited to join local conservation districts and their agency, tribal, non-profit and private partners for a celebration of the voluntary conservation legacy that began in the Dust Bowl.
