Celebrate NACD’s Stewardship Week April 24 to May 1

Mark your calendars: Stewardship Week kicks off on Sunday, April 24 and this year’s theme is We All Need Trees!

In 1955, NASF's partner the National Association of Conservation Districts founded Stewardship Week to encourage Americans to focus on stewardship. The success of Stewardship Week relies on locally-led conservation districts sharing and promoting stewardship and conservation activities. Districts provide conservation and stewardship field days, programs, workshops and additional outreach efforts throughout their community to educate citizens about the need to care for our resources. Many district activities extend beyond the one week observance (April 24-May 1, 2016) to include an entire year of outreach.

Stewardship Week helps to remind us all of the power each person has to conserve natural resources and improve the world. When everyone works together with their local conservation district, that power continuously grows.

For those located in the Washington, DC area, there will be a Stewardship Week event on Tuesday, April 26 from 11:30 AM-3:00 PM EDT.  The event, which will highlight the We All Need Trees theme, will take place between 3rd and 4th Streets on the National Mall, in front of the United States Capitol Building.
