From the President's Desk:

The strength of any group is related to the strength of its members. The Alabama Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society is blessed with many great members that dedicate time and resources to make the organization thrive. One such member, Carl Pinyerd, passed away in 2017. Carl devoted much of his life to conservation of natural resources in Alabama. The following was written by Carl’s wife.

  Dear Members of the Alabama Chapter of Soil and Water Conservation Society,
Thank you so very much for giving to the roof replacement fund at Faith Family Fellowship in memory of my husband Carl Pinyerd. Carl loved this society and his colleagues. Thank you so much for honoring Carl in this special way.
God Bless,
Beth Pinyerd

Please join me in challenging ourselves to be good stewards of natural resources in memory of Carl.


Randy Sims
AL SWCS President
