The Pike County Conservation District presents Dirt! The Movie at the District office in Blooming Grove on Tuesday, November 29th at 7 p.m. Dirt!
The Movie takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and will later return to.
Dirt recycles our water, gives us food, provides us shelter, and can be used as a source of medicine, beauty and culture. “Dirt! The Movie” uncovers the surprising ways we can repair our relationship with dirt and create new possibilities for all life on earth. For more information about the movie and to view a trailer, visit www.dirtthemovie.org. Popcorn and refreshments will be provided for this free program but space is limited so reserve your seats today.
Come and meet Pike County’s new Watershed Specialist, Lori Colgan, who will be facilitating the event.  The District Water Specialist monitors and assesses groundwater and surface water, develops programs to ensure water quality, assists municipalities in developing ordinances and site design criteria for water quality protection, and supports watershed organizations. After the movie Lori will be happy to listen to your concerns and suggestions, answer any questions about what the Pike County Conservation District is doing to protect local natural resources, and discuss her role in the agency.
