Recently a teacher contacted us because one of her students was using our website to research for a project. The student, Dennis, found another helpful website and wanted to see if we would like to add it to our “Useful Links” page. We appreciate the suggestion, and the link appears on that page and below. Thank you Dennis!

Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate our 75th anniversary! Shrimplin Catering served a delicious buffet dinner featuring roast beef and Parmesan chicken, mashed potato bar, green beans, salad, and desert.
Dale Minyo from Ohio AgNet was our featured speaker with the topic “The World is Run by Those that Show Up.” Dale is the most widely recognized farm broadcaster in Ohio and is well known for his continuous promotion of Ohio agriculture. The Coshocton SWCD also debuted a special 75th Anniversary video featuring current and past highlights of the SWCD program. Other highlights for the evening included awards for the Outstanding Conservation Farmer, Big Tree Contest, and the Hay Show.
The entry deadline has passed for the 2017 Big Tree Contest, but mark your calendar for next year! Entry forms will be available by May 1st, 2018. The entries for this year’s contest will be measured soon, and the nominators will be notified about how their tree scored. The two winners will be recognized at this year’s Annual Meeting on October 19.
The Big Tree Contest is open to all species of trees growing on privately owned property in Coshocton County. Property line trees and trees growing on federal, state, or local government land are not eligible. Any person can enter a tree physically located in Coshocton County whether or not the tree is growing on the nominator’s property. The Big Tree Contest is a county-wide contest, while the “Coshocton Is Blooming” category is limited to trees growing within the City of Coshocton. Coshocton SWCD encourages you to submit as many entries as you like for you and your neighbors.
