Tri - County / City Soil & Water Conservation District

Tri - County / City Soil & Water Conservation District Focusing action and establishing partnerships to achieve soil and water conservation. Proud to serve King George, Spotsylvania, Stafford & Fredericksburg in the Potomac, Rappahannock & York River watersheds.

Tri-County/City Soil & Water Conservation District is a regional public agency focusing on natural resource problems and solutions. We work to keep our soils in place and healthy and keep our waters clean. We are not a regulatory agency. Rather, we provide education and assistance – technical and financial – across the district. We assist everyone from individual farmers and homeowners to local government staff and elected officials, businesses as well as community groups. Leading issues include stormwater management, erosion & flooding, pollution reduction. Created by local citizens in 1944, the district is led by a board of publicly elected individuals with a small but dedicated staff.

Just like every other living thing, honeybees need water to survive. During the summer, a hive needs at least a liter of water per day. Happy World Bee Day!

Dive deep into the rabbit hole that is Bear scientific names for Bear Awareness Week!

Though his "Antarctica" definition of "Circle Without Bears" isn't exactly accurate since "antarctica" comes from the Latin "antarktike" which means the "Opposite of Arctic" where "artic" is defined from the Greek "arktos" meaning "bear". You could technically conclude that Antarctica is the opposite or lack of bears, though linguistics isn't always as cut and dry as we'd like it to be. Still - this is a pretty funny and informative tiktok video to brush up on your bear terminology!

"Make Earth Day Every Day!"

We celebrated the 51st Anniversary of Earth Day this past month, but is there a way to keep the Earth Day spirit alive throughout the rest of the year? Absolutely! Our collective daily activities impact the state of the planet, and with green decisions, we can make a sustainable future bloom. Check out some of these eco-friendly activities and swaps to consider to make Earth Day last all year and beyond!

MAY – Grocery Shop with Only Your Reusable Bags: We use over 350,000 plastic bags in our lifetime. Imagine what one reusable bag could accomplish to curb that waste! Check what you already have available in your home for a bag. If you absolutely need to get a new reusable bag, consider the canvas tote from the Fredericksburg Food Co-op to support your local grocery store!

JUNE – Partake in a Trash Clean-Up: Start the Summer with a trash clean-up! What better way to celebrate the Chesapeake Bay than with “Clean the Bay Day” (May 31 – June 5)? This annual event brings together volunteers to pick up trash across the watershed for a healthier and cleaner Chesapeake Bay.

JULY – Switch to a Reef-Safe Sunscreen: In 2018, Hawaii became the first state in the United States to ban the sale of sunscreens that contain oxybenzone and octinoxate, two chemicals linked to coral reef bleaching. As Summer kicks into full swing, switch to a reef-safe sunscreen to accompany your outside adventures.

AUGUST – Digitize Your Paper Documents: School is just around the corner and work is always calling, it seems! Now is the perfect time to go through your paper documents such as bills, receipts, and memos to digitize and declutter that office space. Switch to digital copies and inquire whether your favourite stores have an email option for receipts. Get creative and challenge yourself this month to produce as little paper waste as you can.

SEPTEMBER – Plug In?!: Air conditioners aren’t the only thing sucking your electricity. Our daily appliances and chargers use energy when plugged in - even when they are not in use. For this month, identify your small appliances and hook them up to a power strip. You can easily turn off the strip and everything attached to it when you leave the room to save on your electricity use. Your energy bill will thank you for it!

OCTOBER – Be Sustainable With Your Fashion: Did you know that a pair of jeans uses 500 gallons of water in its total production!? The fashion industry is the second-biggest consumer of water and is responsible for 8-10% of global carbon emissions. As the seasons change and we welcome cooler months, check out your local thrift or secondhand store for your clothing haul to help curb that pollution while staying chic!

NOVEMBER – Opt Out of Black Friday: Join a nationwide movement to opt out of Black Friday this year and opt into nature! Spend this time in gratitude with family and appreciate the outdoors with a warm cup of tea. And if you can, consider donating to your favourite environmental charity or non-profit on Giving Tuesday.

DECEMBER – Mindfully Give Eco-Friendly Gifts: Ok, so we opted out of Black Friday, but the holiday season is about to sneak up on us. What do we do? Consider getting eco-friendly gifts for your loved ones this holiday season to spark some seasonal joy and spread the eco-friendly cheer!
