    The Clark County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) recently received Clean Water Indiana grant funds to promote conservation practices in Clark County. As a result, the SWCD has partnered with the City of Jeffersonville, Memphis Meats and Walnut Ridge Nursery, to host an Urban Conservation Workshop.
    Entitled “Buffers In The City,” the workshop will showcase the riparian buffer practice, which is designed to reduce the amount of sediment and nutrients that flow into a waterbody and ultimately improves water quality. One such buffer was planted earlier this year in Wathen Park in order to decrease the negative impact of nutrient runoff (in the form of fertilizers and pesticides applied to neighboring lawns, and stormwater runoff from the impervious areas of te neighborhood streets) on the waterbodies located in the park.
