The Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District will be giving away 5 lb. bags of wildlife seed food plot mix on Wednesday, September 16th from 3:00 -7:00 p.m. in the parking lot at Mt. St. Francis Center for Spirituality. Food plots offer wildlife a place to forage for food in late fall, winter and early spring. It is left standing over winter to encourage wildlife use. Where fall plowing buries the majority of crop residue, food plots are an excellent choice to encourage wildlife survival. Food plots target deer, quail, turkey, rabbits and songbirds.

The wildlife seed mix we have available contains a variety of Milo, German Millet, and Buckwheat. One 5 lb. bag covers roughly 1⁄2 to 3⁄4 of an acre. The seed will be given away on a first-come first-served basis. 

For more information, please call the district office at (812) 945-9936.

The Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District announces funds are still available to landowners through an ongoing 2019 Clean Water Indiana grant. Floyd County is offering funds for a program to assist in the evaluation and eradication of invasive plants on your acreage. The SWCD is offering to pay a portion of the assistance provided by a consultant forester to help homeowners and landusers to identify invasive species on their property. This grant will also offer a trade-in payment for eradication and replacement of invasive plants in your yard, and cost-share native tree plantings / riparian forest buffer / pollinator planting.

For more information and cost-share rates and reimbursements, please contact Angel Jackson at the Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District office at
