Jefferson County Conservation recently purchased a new telescope for programs. The funds came from several donations which largely included memorial funds from Barney Baird. Barney was one of the original members of the Jefferson County Conservation Board. Barney’s wife Verda, son Randy, and daughter-in-law Jan are pictured with Naturalist Brittney Tiller behind the telescope during a night sky program earlier in December. This wonderful donation will be used by many to observe the night sky. Thank you to the Baird family and all our donors.
