July 7, 2014 - This was the July Monthly Board Meeting. Minutes of that meeting were published on our blog and made available to all Club members for review and comment. A motion was made, seconded and approved to accept the Board Meeting Minutes as presented.

July 21,2014 - Todays Program Chair was Lion Charlotte. The program was presented by Miss Katie Heer from the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District (IERCD) and she talked to us about the conservation programs the District is involved in. Of most importance at this time is water conservation. She reviewed lawn and gardening procedures, types of sprinklers, timers and use of drought tolerant plants. For additional, more specific information she suggested visiting libraries and drought tolerant gardens.

The Inland Empire Resource Conservation District (IERCD) is part of a National system of conservation districts , first created during the 1930's in response to the soil quality and stability issues arising during the Dust Bowl. The IERCD is a special District organized under the State Public Resources Code and is governed by a seven member Board of Directors. The District Board and Staff promote preservation of natural resources through work with area landowners, community groups, government agencies and environmental agencies .

Because of the complicated nature of mitigation projects the Board and Staff members provide a range of services to ensure a balance of economic development and biological preservation.

This was an excellent presentation and very timely considering the State's current water shortages.
