The Boone County Conservation Partnership will be hosting a Cover Crops Workshop and Field Day on Thursday, March 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Boone County 4-H Fairgrounds in Lebanon. The program has been approved as a Private Applicator Recertification Program (PARP).
The forestry project will help you to learn how to identify trees, uses of trees, the benefits of trees, and the importance of our woodlands. A knowledge of trees and woodland management leads to a greater enjoyment of the outdoors. An understanding of tree characteristics will allow future landowners to choose the best varieties for urban or rural benefits that include cooling, wildlife habitat, and reducing erosion and other types of pollution.
The soil and water conservation project teaches youth about soil, water, and environmental stewardship. Learn about soil and water quality, how they interact, and how we can protect and preserve them.
Youth will learn basic information about weather, including what causes variations in weather and why we have different seasons and climates on the earth. In this project you will observe and record weather conditions and learn weather symbols.
Observing and studying wildlife can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. This project will help you learn to identify wildlife, basic wildlife needs, and how wildlife interact with other wildlife and with people. At the advanced level you will learn how to create a wildlife habitat, wherever you live.
