The Snyder County Conservation District had sponsored a poster contest in which elementary and middle school aged students create posters promoting conservation and environmental stewardship.
However, the last time any school participated in this contest was in 2012, where sixth graders from Middleburg Middle School created posters.Any teacher interested in this should contact Jason Winey, our Watershed Specialist, at 570-837-3000, x112.
In 2008, we debuted our "Soil Tunnel" at the Kid's Grove Fall Festival held in Selinsgrove. The "Soil Tunnel" teaches the basics and importance of our soils while crawling "under the soil surface" in a "tunnel" made by the our staff. The Tunnel has been used in other events as well. Much of the materials were donated by local businesses (A list can be found under our "Education & Youth Downloads" section).
Check out the pictures on the Soil Tunnel link at the "Education & Youth Downloads." For more information, contact our Watershed Specialist, Jason Winey, at 570-837-3000, x112.
