Alex Grosse Receives Soil Conservation Award
Wednesday, November 10, 2010 • Posted November 10, 2010

Alex Grosse receives special recognition during the 70th Annual Meeting of Texas Soil and Water Conservation District Directors held in Lubbock in late October.

Alex Grosse has served as a Director for the Mason County SWCD #223 for 20 years. Directors for locally-governed SWCDs are volunteers, and receive no salary. SWCD directors must have knowledge of the conservation problems in their district and have the ability to organize people and resources for effective action in controlling soil erosion, thereby making the land more productive. Local SWCD Directors such as Grosse have accepted their positions because they believe in the local, voluntary SWCD approach, which has proven successful for more than half a century.
