Thank you to the teachers and parents for encouraging your students to think about conservation through our “Life in the Soil: DIG DEEPER” Poster Contest! We were so excited to have entries from your classrooms this year. It’s always a great thing to see the world through a child’s eyes, more importantly, how simple it is to help our natural resources.
