Letter: Correction to virtual fencing story
We wanted to thank you for the recent article about our extensive virtual fencing pilot project being conducted across Eagle County.
We also want to correct a small but significant factual matter:
We are the Eagle County Conservation District, not the Eagle County Soil Conservation Service. That name has not been used for a number of years and reflects a far smaller scope of work than what the Conservation District now conducts.
The Conservation District has as its mission: “Preserving and restoring natural resources by collaborating, educating and cooperating for conservation.”
This includes conservation efforts toward our local soils, water, air, plants and animals. ECCD is working on water conservation efforts through landscape conversion for homeowners, special districts, municipalities and more; financial assistance upgrading ditch infrastructures; daily watering indexes and providing drought tolerant grass seed; Soil health projects, education and more.

Again, thank you for the article and we look forward to working with you to provide more about the Eagle County Conservation District. For more information, please visit: EagleCountyCD.com
