Environmental Education

Check out this episode of Outdoor Elements where Ally talks with Evie Kirkwood about watersheds with our Augmented Reality Sandbox!

The St. Joseph County Soil & Water Conservation District provides many educational opportunities throughout the county for schools and other groups serving students, and for adults committed to life-long learning.

We believe in extending conservation education to all ages. Students can develop an understanding of conservation at an early age and can carry those lessons with them throughout their lives.
