In September, Clermont SWCD worked with Valley View Foundation to remove a lowhead dam on the East Fork Little Miami River in Batavia, returning the river to its natural state for the first time since the 1940s.
In June, Clermont SWCD and the Clermont County Park District received a grant from Ohio EPA to restore a stream and construct three small wetlands at Shor Park on Tealtown Road. Construction will begin in the Summer of 2020.
Clermont SWCD named Louise Gartner its 2019 Cooperator of the Year. In two short years, Louise has gone from a small vegetable garden to raising organic crops under four high tunnels.
