FEBRUARY 28, 2023
Scioto Soil and Water Conservation District in partnership with Scioto County OSU Extension and Shawnee State Park is excited to be hosting another Conservation School event. The event is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday February 28, 2023 at the Scioto County Career and Technical Center Main Campus at 951 Vern Riffe Drive in Lucasville, Ohio. The event will start at 6:00 PM with a soup and sandwich dinner and we expect to be finished with presentations by 9:00 PM. Cost to attend for adults is $15 with children 12 and under free.
Attendees will have the chance to sit in on two classes that evening and all youth attendees will have the option of spending the class sessions in our kid's zone and participate in activities, crafts, and more with Northwest High School FFA students. The class sessions for the event will cover a variety of topics and our goal is to connect you to local resources to help make your plans and interests a reality. Each session is taught by local experts and supports good land stewardship and conservation.
Class session topics include: Raising Backyard Chickens for Eggs and Meat Rabbits with Brooks Warner, OSU Extension; Wild Edibles with Jenny Richards, Shawnee State Park; Food Preservation Methods with Treva Williams, OSU Extension; Raising Dairy Goats with Brooks Warner; Getting Started with Beekeeping and Honey with John Collins, Mackletree Honey Co.; Permaculture and Native Plants with Scott Lewis, Scioto SWCD.
