The Powder River Conservation District (PRCD), out of Kaycee, came before the Johnson County Commissioners at last week's meeting, to give their annual report on their accomplishments this year and plans for the new year.

Anita Bartlett, District Manager with the PRCD, gave some highlights of their busy year in Southern Johnson County, including spending nearly $8,000 on local conservation education programs; the collection of nearly 1,600 lbs of E-waste in Kaycee alone during their drive in November; and a streambed restoration project on the Middle Fork of the Powder River through Kaycee from the Interstate 25 Bridge east to Harold Jarrard Park, which should be completed in 2014.

Commissioner John Gibbs questioned whether or not the PRCD was
accepting of what was coming out of the Bureau of Land Management's Powder River Resource Management Plan(RMP), which Bartlett responded to.

According to their website, the PRCD provides leadership to initiate the necessary programs to meet the people's needs for conservation of natural resources within southern Johnson County. The District receives mill levy funding through an approved property tax assessment from residents of southern Johnson County for administration and program operations.
