New Junior Conservationist Program announced

The Northwest Ohio Soil & Water Conservation Districts are offering a free at-home “Do-It-Yourself Junior Conservationist” summer program for youths.
The program’s hands-on activities and registration can be found online at
Participants will learn about soil, water, plants, animals, community and nature by completing activities in each category and submitting photos of themselves doing the activities or photos of their completed projects by Friday, Aug. 28.
Upon completion of the program, participants will be sent a certificate. An optional Junior Conservationist t-shirt is available for $10.
Youths who don’t wish to register or receive a t-shirt and certificate, can still enjoy the activities on their own for free.
The Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District will sponsor t-shirts for the first 50 Junior Conservationists to complete the program in Ottawa County. To sign up, call Becky Simpson at the Ottawa SWCD at 419-898-1595, email or visit
