NEWS & EVENTS
Milkweed Pod Collection 9/1/2018 through 10/30/2018
Lucas Soil & Water Conservation District is participating again in the Annual Milkweed Pod Collection through the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative! Beginning September 1st, you can drop off your dry common milkweed pods to our office in Maumee. Please make sure to only harvest pods that are dry and gray or brown in color. No green pods will be accepted. Also, please store pods in paper bags or boxes as plastic encourages moisture and rot. Questions, call our office! Find more information here.
