CONSERVATION THROUGH EDUCATION

Soil and water are recognized as our basic natural resources.  The way we manage these and their products--plants and animals--is important in determining our present and future welfare.

How well we manage our resources does not depend entirely on land owners and operators; we all have a share in conservation. 

Mecklenburg Soil and Water Conservation District understands that without the adequate knowledge, these natural resources may quickly diminish.  

ANNUAL CONTESTS: 
The annual contests are offered to students that attend an elementary or middle school in Mecklenburg County.   The  audience for the annual contests is Grades 3-8.
