Pennsylvania’s Governor ordered those of us in Venango County to stay at home effective at the end of the day March 20th. As a result, all of us at the Venango Conservation District are working from home. The office has been posted as closed and anyone needing to reach us is directed to call the office (814-676-2832) and leave a message or to contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
WE ARE STILL WORKING FOR NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN VENANGO COUNTY
The success of keeping the wheels of work running for the VCD is the tireless work of Lance Bowes our District Manager. He sees to it that the answering machine messages are directed, that the snail mail is distributed and that staff are accomplishing the work that the VCD does. Lance is coordinating tele-meetings including our regularly scheduled board meetings for April and May.
Staff is now permitted to perform some work in the field beginning May 11th. Staff will be following protocol modeled after the Governor's recommendation for social distancing and virus safety.
Even with our restrictions, staff has been busy with position development, permit reviews and with applications to funding sources for future projects in Venango County. We are all very much looking forward to getting back to the office and the field after this crisis. For now, we’re still getting good things done for Venango County – just from home.
