PERRYSBURG - Black Swamp Conservancy, a northwest Ohio land conservation organization, to commemorate Earth Day recently kicked off an effort to expand community awareness and garner new support. The "Help Us Grow" campaign has a goal of raising $13,331 through new donors by the end of 2014. This total represents $1 for each of the 13,331 acres the Conservancy currently protects.
"We are fortunate to live in an area that values our diverse habitats and rich farmland" said Rob Krain, executive director of the Conservancy. "As a nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of the community, reaching out to new supporters is essential to our continued growth and expanding the impact of our work."
Black Swamp Conservancy works to protect agricultural land, woods, prairies and wetlands using perpetual land conservation agreements known as conservation easements. These agreements with landowners restrict the permitted uses in order to protect the property's natural resource value.

Gold Medal
Gold Medal 4-H Club met April 12 at Adams Conservation Club and April 24 at W. W. Knights Club.
At the meetings, the members have been able to display their talent through project activities and events held during the meeting.
At Adams Conservation Club the members were able to do archery, Jorge Ramirez, who is doing an archery book, was eager to be the first one to try and he hit the target every time. All the members enjoyed the event and even many parents tried.
At the W. W. Knight Club, the group had a potluck and a few of the kids with a cooking project made food for it. Samantha Drzewiecki, one with a cooking book, made fruit dip. Samantha said ”I chose this book because I really wanted to learn how to cook for my family and it is always fun to eat the food you made.”
She is also one of the recreation directors, as she and Rania Maaraba sat the whole group down to play the telephone game.
