OKLAHOMA, Pittsburg County CD, Upper Washita CD – …”describe the land where you are from in Oklahoma.”

Bradley Hamilton leads the Pittsburg County Conservation District in southeastern Oklahoma, while Anne York is from the Upper Washita Conservation District in Roger Mills County in western Oklahoma.

“It’s a little bit of everything,” Hamilton said in answer to the question. “We’ve got everything from worst-case to best-case scenarios. We’ve got good farm ground, we’ve got mountain ranges, we’ve got lots of rock. We’ve got the worst clay in the world, we’ve got the best sandy loam. We’re very diverse.”
