"Putting Conservation on the Ground"

Education is the KEY…

We believe one of our main responsibilities is educating the public on the use of our natural resources.  The Anderson Conservation District:

· Sponsors county wide essay and poster contest for students K-8 grade.

· Sponsors high school teams to participate in the state Envirothon competition.

· Sends high school students to the Governor’s Institute for Natural Resource Conservation at Clemson.

· Provides Soil Stewardship Week materials to churches and schools in the county, free of charge.

· Selects outstanding district cooperator each year.

· Conducts conservation tours on timely topics.

· Produces informational programs which include newspaper articles, program to groups and a monthly newsletter.

· Provides free technical and informational assistance to all units of government, schools, landowners and land users as available human resources permit.
