The Benton Soil & Water Conservation District Commissioners presented a $2500 check to the Benton County Conservation Foundation to be used in the development of the new Nature Center at Rodgers Park.
The six-acre site is being developed to provide conservation education, recreation, and centralized housing for staff and volunteers. The site includes wetlands, prairie meadow and abundant wildlife habitat. The Nature Center building will provide year-round, weatherproof, accessible programming for students and adults.
The Benton SWCD Commissioners are happy to help with this endeavor.
