The annual Conservation Outdoor Workshop for fifth graders was held Friday, October 12, 2018 at Mt. View Recreational Park. During the program, student groups rotated through five different sessions facilitated by different community agencies. The Natural Resource Conservation Service conducted a session concerning soil erosion, during which students learned about the limited resources for growing food on Earth and steps that can be implemented to conserve soil. The Soil Conservation District workshop featured a Fear Factor box game that challenged students to guess the contents of ten boxes by feeling what was inside. The Army Corps of Engineers presented a session on water safety and allowed students to experience the effects of hypothermia on fine motor skills with the Ice Bucket Coin Challenge. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife session focused on successful wildlife programs, including a black bear demonstration and presentation of tools used in wildlife projects. The U.K. Cooperative Extension Service facilitated an activity on local ecology. Students then participated in a scavenger hunt for things they could find in our wooded areas. Students enjoyed lunch at the park at the conclusion of the program.
