To Conserve Lincoln County's Natural Resources
60+ YEARS OF 6TH GRADE CONSERVATION DAY!
Each year for 60+ years the Lincoln County Conservation District brings together 6th graders from across the county
to participate in the annual 6th Grade Day.
This year over 130 students saw presentations that included the Missoula Floods by the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Lincoln County office; how to use a fire
extinguisher to put out a fire by the Reardan fire department; downed power poles by Inland Power and Light; and identifying species of trees by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
One of the most popular demonstrations this year was put
on by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), who usually focuses their presentation on archeology and recreation. This year, students got to shoot a bow and arrow, and practice throwing using an “atlatl,” a tool that helps users throw a spear farther. Students also had a great time creating their own Missoula Flood with representatives from the locale NRCS.
Big Thank Yous to everyone who helps to make this event successful each year and to continue this great tradition in Lincoln County.
Our goal is to assist producers in renting direct seed equipment or by custom seeding. Sharing the cost of trying this conservation practice can help you get over the financial barrier to implement this practice.
The LCCD's most recent project is the renovation of the Davenport Community Garden. The new garden will not only be ADA compliant, it will also serve as a demonstration site for water conservation practices, xeriscaping, and native plant demonstrations, as well as an inviting place for the Community of Davenport.
