WASHINGTON, Pierce CD — Farmers on the Key Peninsula now have a person to turn to for assistance when needed. The [Pierce Conservation District] has a long history of collaboration with Key Peninsula landowners. With the help of volunteers from the community, PCD plants trees on the Key Peninsula to improve soil and connect forested land parcels to provide continuous habitat. It conducts workshops to educate livestock owners on the importance of manure bins to manage waste; encourages growth and donations of surplus garden produce to local food banks; and hosts boat tours aimed at educating waterfront property owners on erosion-preventing vegetation that can provide an alternative to bulkheads.
