Education Matters!

The Guernsey Soil & Water Conservation District has a variety of educational and hands-on activities/programs. Some of Guernsey County's local schools have been taking full advantage of all the resources we have to offer! On Monday, October 29th, our employees Mark Wallen & Madyson Epperson provided a rain barrel workshop for students at Buckeye Trail High School. They learned about the importance of conserving and reusing resources, and were able to keep the rain barrels they assembled during the workshop for use at their schools.

Thursday, November 8th, Education/Natural Resources Specialist Madyson Epperson visited Meadowbrook Middle School's Science Club to discuss some of Ohio's key wildlife species and make molds of their tracks!

And November 14th through the 16th our Education Specialist was at Brook Elementary teaching 3rd graders about recycling, 4th graders about animal adaptations and fifth graders about Ohio's Wildlife and their habitats. The students are doing art projects centered around natural resources and the environment. If you're interested in any of our resources and programs we have to offer, please call our office at (740) 489-5276 or email mepperson@guernseycounty.org
