THE LITTLE BLUE Natural Resources District, headquartered in Davenport, includes parts of six counties and all of one.

Conservation work is to be planned here for various projects in the Little Blue Valley watershed. Since this photo was taken, the front has been installed. Express Photo A committee appointed by the chairman of the governing board of the larger group, elects projects for immediate im- plementation. The larger group must approve all projects. One of the first acts of the committee is to offer a tree plant ing service together with a planter and crew which will plant orders of 100 or more trees. This includes a spraying service. Clark-McNary trees are still ordered through local county Extension offices. First Projects Ready The board recently approved eight projects in which the Little Blue Natural Resources District will share costs. These include: A combination flood control and road structure on the north edge of Hebron. Thayer County has agreed to build it and fur- nish 50 percent of the cost. ttebron will furnish 25 percent and the Little Blue NRD 25 percent.

The seventh project is a combination road and flood control structure south of Clay Career in Clay County known as Ihe Shuck Dam. It will replace an old bridge and the lake will ix, used as an irrigation reuse pit. The final project approved is entirely different from the olhers, according to Rice. It involves 120 acres in the former Bowman Spring Creek Walershed District. The state has pul $18,000 in matching funds in the 120 acres as a flood control area. The Little Blue Natural Resources District has agreed to refund the money to slate and take control, then convert it into a recreational arca.
