Officials with the Knox County Soil and Conservation District want to invite you to an upcoming event.

The conservation district has a new initiative called Knox County Goes Native.

The goal is to inform, educate and help those interested in making a better habitat in their own yard.

Officials will be hosting a reception at The Open Gallery at 329 Main Street in Vincennes on Friday, April 16th from 7-8:30 pm.

At the reception, five local artists will be challenged to create a logo for the new initiative.

Artists will be in attendance to voice their ideas.

The event is also a way for the public to learn more about Knox County Goes Native.

The free reception is open to the public. Masks and social distancing will be required to attend.
