Osceola Soil and Water Conservation District opposes road through Split Oak

The Osceola Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) created a resolution opposing the Osceola Parkway Extension through Split Oak Forest. The Osceola SWCD is tasked with protecting the soil and water of Osceola County and promoting conservation.

The CFX Board has alternate routes around the park that would leave this area undisturbed. We urge them to respect the irreplaceable land and select a different path,” says Larry Schneck, Chairman of Osceola SWCD

Dave and I’s first joint interview

Wednesday Dave and I were interviewed by Teresa Watkins on "In Your Garden" live on 790AM out of Leesburg. She's been following along on Facebook since December and asked us Monday to be on the show.  Dave and I tried to tag-team the questions but the lag made it easy to interrupt each other. I like that the publicity is coming a bit easier these days, though I'd like this issue to be national recognized. If these conservation easements and deed restrictions can be extinguished then that will degrade the reputation and effectiveness of these land protection tools throughout the entire United States.
