Books donated by SWCD
The Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District recently donated five children’s books dealing with natural resources to the Oak Harbor Public Library.
Board representatives Rich Thorbahn and Jerry Whipple presented the books to director Pam Hoesman. The books were received during the “Back to School” book drive sponsored by the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation District this summer.
