Latah SWCD’s 25th annual Conservation Awareness Days was held May 17th and 18th, 2012 at Spring Valley Reservoir. Fifth or sixth grade classes from Deary, Genesee, Logos, McDonald, Potlatch, St. Mary’s, and Troy schools attended. Students learned about aquatic insects, forestry, outdoor survival, raptor, steelhead migration, and soil. They also spent time fishing and got to take home a native plant! Latah SWCD offered up to $300 per school for transportation expenses.
A big THANK YOU to the numerous experts who volunteered as instructors. They were represented by EcoAnalysts, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Idaho Department of Lands, Latah Search and Rescue, and the WSU Raptor Club.
