Resource Conservation Partnership Program

Got Land?  Protect Your Natural Resources!

The Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District has partnered with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide financial assistance for agricultural and forest management to Hamilton County landowners though the Resource Conservation Partnership Program.

Funding is available for: 

  • installing high tunnels over an existing garden
  • implementing forest management plans
  • wildlife habitat enhancement practices

This is a regional watershed based grant program and the applicant’s property must reside in the St Lawrence River, Black River, or Upper Hudson River watersheds.

Landowners who are not in those watersheds can still apply but they will be competing for funds through the general NRCS Environmental Quality Incentive Program.

The sign up period has started and applications are now being accepted. For those who are interested in learning more about the program please contact the District office at 518-548-3991, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Responsive Layouts

Oculus's responsive grid system is designed for desktop, tablet and smartphone systems, each with minor modifications to ensure compatibility in each mode. The table above shows the breakdown of screen resolutions and associated devices, and what layout characters are then applied to each.

Responsive Classes

Another useful feature available, via Bootstrap, is the collection of responsive utility classes that can be used to help tweak layouts by providing a simple method of showing or hiding modules. Insert the above module class suffixes into your settings to show/hide a module for a particular mode.

The District’s accomplishments would not be possible without the support of the State of New York, Hamilton County, and FLLOWPA.

Media Queries

In terms of media queries, the breakdown is:

/* Smartphones */
@media (max-width: 480px) { ... }

/* Smartphones to Tablets */
@media (min-width: 481px) and (max-width: 767px) { ... }

/* Tablets */
@media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 959px) { ... }

For mobile devices, there are two options, a dropdown panel menu with items in a tree format or a select box using the browsers own UI elements. Chose a format in the template's menu settings.

The Dropdown Menu is a CSS driven dropdown menu, offering such features as multiple columns, inline icons, subtext, modules and positions, custom column widths, item distribution and menu offsets.

SplitMenu displays 1st level items in the navigation bar and children in the Sidebar.
