Kids enjoy Conservation Day Camp

June 17, 2019by ncdea

OHIO, Darke County SWCD – The weather was no problem for the 150 second-grade to fifth-grade students attending the first ever Conservation Day Camp hosted by the Darke County Soil and Water Conservation District (Darke SWCD) at Chenoweth Trails Thursday.

The event was the brainchild of sisters Elizabeth Farver with Darke SWCD and Jennifer Yohey, a first-grade teacher with Greenville City Schools. Their father had been a supervisor for Darke SWCD and they grew up with a wealth of outdoor activities, including summer camp. The Conservation Day Camp was an opportunity to share those activities and more with children in the county who may otherwise never experience them.
