Final plans for the upcoming Clays for Conservation Shoot and the purchase of a Buffalo Turbine blower were top priority at yesterday's Elk County Conservation District Board of Directors meeting.
The 4th Annual Clays for Conservation Shoot to raise money for environmental education programs in the county is set for Sunday, July 15, at the St. Marys Sportsmen's Club. Resource Conservation Technician Kate Yetzer said that registration will begin at 9 a.m. and they will begin as soon as they have a five-man team.
"If anybody's interested in doing that, it's a good time," she said. "You can come out just to visit or you can come out to shoot."

On June 14, several ECCD members, along with some representatives from nearby townships and municipalities participated in a demonstration of the Buffalo Turbine KB5 owned by the Cameron County Conservation District. The purpose of the demonstration, was to help the district understand how the KB5 works to determine if it is the best choice for them to purchase.
