Stephens County Conservation District Conservation Cost-Share Assistance Announced  The Stephens County Conserva- tion District has announced that funds are available for cost share assistance on selected conservation practices benefiting soil and water conservation. The state of Okla- homa has provided limited funds to conservation districts across the state to help landowners implement measures that protect soil and water resources.  “The great advantage of the Conservation Cost-Share Program for Oklahoma is that it is a locally-led program,” said Lee Wayne Stepp, chairman of the Stephens County Conservation District. “Our conservation district, with input from local residents and agricultural producers, select which of the available conservation practices to provide assistance on.”  Conservation practices available for cost-share assistance through the Stephens County Conservation District include but are not limited to the following: water well, pond, pipeline, cross-fence, and grass planting. Participants may receive cost assistance up to $7,500.00 per participant. Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge offers a range of activities By Blake Moren  On March 30 at 5:30 p.m., the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will have a private charter bus tour. The tour will include a member of the Friends of the Wichi- tas Group. Participants will meet at the south parking lot of the Hilton Garden Inn on 2nd Street. The bus will leave at 6 p.m. Participants are expected to see bison and sunsets. Admission is free.  The refuge also offers a variety of activities from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  The refuge is located North of Lawton, just West of I-44 and contains over 60,000 acres. The Wichita Mountains are approximately 500 million years old. It was established as a Forest Reserve on July 4th, 1901 by President William McKinley.
