A big project in Barlow gets a financial boost from the Ohio EPA.
The Ohio EPA awards a $1,388 environmental education mini grant to the Washington Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) for the Barlow Conservation Area at the Barlow Fairgrounds.
The project involves planting native grass and wildflowers to control erosion.
Educational exhibits related to wildlife habitat, conservation techniques and more will also be developed.
Nine projects throughout the state were funded for $35,192.
