New Happenings at PC Conservation District

The Putnam County Conservation District boasts some new amenities at the Natural Lands Area!

A new cabin was built for people to rent throughout the year at a cost of $25.00 a day in-county residents and $50.00 a day for out-of-county residents. Come check it out.

Also completed this July was a new handicapped accessible outdoor shelter grill and cement pad. This project was done by J. Marshall Newhalfen of Henry from Troop #1851 Bradford. Marshall came to the District board with plans to landscape and build a handicapped accessible grill at the shelter for his Eagle Scout Project. The Board agreed that this was a great opportunity and unanimously agreed to donate a new ADA grill to the project. Marshall finished the project in July, which incorporated landscaping rocks alongside the new cement pathway to the shelter, a new cement pad and placement of the new grill alongside the shelter. This is a great asset to the District as many differentially able individuals come to the park and now will be able to enjoy cooking out at the shelter with ease.

The Putnam County District Board would also like to thank Mr. Dave Garcia and Mr. Mike McConnell for allowing this year’s PCHS Cross Country Meets which ran at the Natural Lands Area and to Mr. Heiser for continuing to use the Natural Lands Area and Lake Senachwine for the FFA program and the recent level 5 State Forestry Competition at the Natural Lands Area on Sept 25.
