Since 1978, the Natural Resources Day Outdoor Classroom for 5th graders is held annually in the spring. The students rotate between stations such as Woodland Plants & Flowers, Bird Identification, Tree Identification, Entomology, Watersheds, Soil Health, and Backyard Conservation.
In celebration of Arbor Day, 3rd grade students receive their own potted tree to take home.
Volunteering is a great opportunity for High School and College students to gain some experience in the agriculture and conservation field. You can increase valuable skills needed in the future and gain a "hands-on" opportunity. It also looks great on a resume.
Retired persons, homemakers and others are also welcome. We match a person’s interests and skills with the work and projects we have available, such as Computers, ArcGIS mapping, Conservation Planning, Field Design & Layout, Public Relations, Marketing, Photography, Educational Projects with the Community, and more! Contact us for more information.
