Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District Summer Camp The Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District will hold a Summer Camp for students ages 8 to 13 at Van Wert Smiley Park on June 23, 2022. We will plan to meet at the shelter house at 10:00 AM and finish up at 12:00 PM. The topic for the morning will be trees. Students will be learning about trees and be given a chance to make a craft that goes along with trees. A no fee registration is required for the students to participate. Please call the Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District at 419-238-9591 EXT 4273 to register. There will be a limited number of students who may participate. Parents and guardians are asked to stay at the park during the event in case their students need help. If you have questions please call or email Tammy Campbell at 419-238-9591 EXT 4273, email@example.com or Becky Dowler at firstname.lastname@example.org , 419-238-9591. The Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District wishes to thank the Van Wert Parks Department, the Van Wert County Foundation, and the Van Wert County Commissioners for their help in making events like this possible.
The Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce the Poster Contest winners. Each year the SWCD holds a poster contest for local students grades K-12. The National Association of Conservation Districts chooses a theme that the students much incorporate into their poster. The theme this year was “Healthy Soil : Healthy Life”. If a student wins at the local level their poster then gets submitted into the State Contest and then the National Contest, if selected. We hope doing a fun project like this provides students with an opportunity to understand the importance of conservation.
