The great outdoors

Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District's 34th Annual Lynn Galusha Conservation Field Day Thursday, Sept. 19, saw fifth- and sixth-grade students from five schools hike the district's nature trail to six different stations, learning about conservation from experts. They had the opportunity to take notes and enter the fifth-grade essay or sixth-grade poster contest. The final presentation of the day was at Lake Pleasant Transfer Station, where the children learned where their trash goes.
