Information & Education

Land Conservation Staff work with schools, camps, lake associations, groups & organizations, and individual property owners in teaching land and water stewardship, and conservation education in general.

An annual event involving local school children is the Conservation Poster Contest, winners from the local contest proceeding to the district and state contests.

The Land Conservation Department also provides a scholarship each year for (4) students to attend a State Conservation Camp.

Another fairly new event is the Conservation Field Day, a day of environmental learning for area fifth graders provided in cooperation with UW-Extension, Dept. of Natural Resources and USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service.

In-school Groundwater Education is being administered by the Golden Sands Resource and Development and funded by the Land Conservation Department.
