Farm field days

     

The Conservation District has promoted and sponsored many agricultural field days for farmers in the past and look forward to providing more educational field days in the future for citizens of Warren County. We have the ability to provide field days on a number of topics including but not limited to forage and hay quality, cover crops, forestry, wildlife habitat, and others. Keep in contact with our office if you are interested in attending one of our field days. 

Canon north american envirothon

     

The North American Envirothon Competition was established to provide a chance for high school students across the United States and Canada to compete in a hands-on environmental problem-solving competition. Teams are tested in five natural resource categories including soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues.  This year, the District is excited to build a team with the Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science located at Western Kentucky University’s campus. The Gatton Academy is the top public high school in the nation!  For more information, check out the Envirothon’s website. http://www.envirothon.org/

j. french moore conservation scholarship

     

J. French Moore was a long time chairman of the Warren County Conservation District board. After his death, the District developed a scholarship in his honor.  Each year, the Conservation District awards an $800 scholarship to a Western Kentucky University College of Agriculture student. In order to be eligible, the student must have completed 30 semester hours, enrolled full time, and an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher.  Even though a Warren County resident is preferred, applications of students from surrounding counties will be considered. For more information about this scholarship opportunity, contact our office. 

classroom presentations

     

The Conservation District believes conservation education is valuable in order to better our natural resources. If you have a need for someone to speak about natural resource concerns, soil or water quality, or wildlife and forestry issues, please contact our office. We have worked with kindergarten students all the way up to college level students.
