KANSAS, Harvey County CD – Newton fourth-grade students gathered at the Harvey County fairgrounds last week to participate in the annual Agriculture and Conservation Festival put on by the Harvey County Conservation District. Students learned about conservation and the environment, as well as local wildlife, through the many stations set up as part of the festival — which included an interactive skit about the prairie ecosystem, models illustrating water contamination/pollution and erosion, a walk-through trailer exploring the world of soil and more.

KANSAS, Clay County CD – Last week Tom Meek celebrated 15 years of service working for the Clay County Conservation District at a retirement reception at the USDA Service Center Thursday.

If it seems like Meek has been involved in the conservation district much longer than that, it’s because he has. Prior to working for the local conservation district, he spent three years working part-time for the conservation district in Marshall County and as a long-time farmer before that, he’s advocated the practices that the conservation district encourages.

Envirothon is an outdoor, natural resource education program for high school students that is organized and coordinated by Conservation Districts. The Kansas Envirothon Committee, a part of the KACD Conservation Youth and Education Committee, oversees the Envirothon activities in Kansas.

In the Envirothon competition, teams of five students work together to complete written tests in five natural resource areas; Forestry, Soils, Aquatics, Rangeland, Wildlife, and a Current Issue, which changes from year to year. An oral presentation related to the current issue topic is the final part of the competition at the State and National Levels. Envirothon events are held at three levels — regional, state, and the North American Envirothon for winning teams from U.S. states and Canadian provinces.
