Licking County River Round Up Poster Contest 2023

Licking County River Round Up Poster Contest

Through this amazing community-based conservation effort, a river system that had all but been abandoned, has seen a beautiful rebirth of aquatic and bird life. The River Round Up is coordinated by the Licking County Soil & Water Conservation District in partnership with many local agencies and organizations.
