Our Mission:

 

A team that works to conserve Our Resources, educates and inspires Our Community to support Our Future, through science and wise, conscious choices on the Farms, in the Homes, and at the Schools in Seneca County.

To support Our Future, Seneca Conservation District (SCD) and the family of Tia Rice want to help fund students pursuing science-based careers that relate to the mission of Seneca Conservation District (conservation, ecology, sustainability, agriculture, etc). The information for the scholarships is listed below.

About Sarah Schott

I have enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the outdoors my entire life. My enjoyment of writing, reading, and teaching others leads me to want to share my passions of the environment. I have also found conservation to be very important and I am well aware of how important conservation choices are! Through my work with the District, I like to deliver information that is helpful, inspiring, and challenging for our readers to make even better conservation choices of all our natural resources!
