Photography Contest

In todays society, photographs are the norm.  We take photos of everything.  Why not take some time to study and photograph things in nature.  You will be amazed at what you can find in our natural world by just taking some time to get out and discover.

Your discovery time will give you many opportunities to find nature and all the connecting elements of a healthy environment.  Take time to capture in in photographs.

2022 Poster Contest

Soil is a dirty topic, but everyone needs to learn more about it! Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil produces healthy food; healthy food produces healthy people! One characteristic of healthy soil is the presence of a diverse community of living things, including earthworms, insects and other arthropods, protozoans, fungi and bacteria. How we treat the soil affects how many and what types of organisms can live there, so don’t treat your soil like dirt! We invite you to learn more about soil life, and about the conservation practices that promote soil health. Then, create a poster to show others what you’ve learned about life in the soil. 

Entry deadline is April 15, 2022
