Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts awarded grant    


As part of their continuing commitment to Oklahoma and the health of its environment, the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) today announced an initiative to help educate all Oklahomans on the benefits of soil health. The initiative is supported in part by a grant from the Kirkpatrick Foundation.

"Improved soil health is something everyone should be interested in, not just those of us in production agriculture," Kim Farber, President of OACD said. "Whether you are talking about increasing yields to feed a growing planet, protecting the quality of our water, addressing climate change, improving wildlife habitats, insuring that we have adequate water for human consumption and production agriculture into the future or helping to improve the bottom line of farmers and ranchers, soil health can help address all of these issues. We are extremely honored to have received funding from the Kirkpatrick Foundation in our effort to spread the word about the benefits of soil health and we are excited to be able to get this effort off the ground."

"The Foundation is pleased to approve a grant to OACD to help their work in soil health and conservation, which will be of significance to the entire state," said Louisa McCune-Elmore, Kirkpatrick Foundation Executive Director. The Foundation has supported Oklahoma non-profits since its inception in 1955, giving grants in the areas of arts, culture, education, animal wellbeing, environmental conservation and historical preservation.
