Soil and Water Conservation spreads information throughout Ottawa County

December 19, 2018by ncdea


OHIO, Ottawa SWCD — Education Specialist Becky Simpson of the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District has been on a mission recently, visiting classrooms with hands-on activities, engaging students in topics such as geology, weathering and erosion.

She recently taught rock formation and identification to 4th graders and shared how many rocks are used in everyday products, such as toothpaste, food and video game consoles.

The Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District wants to encourage more teachers to reach out for agency programs. Simpson said they are excited to help teach science in every classroom and can even bring its Augmented Reality Sandbox.
