Let's catch up!

I have been so busy with programs in our schools and adult facilities that I have neglected our website! I am going to add pictures but just to highlight a few things the District has been doing:

We are assisting in planning and working on the new Nature Trail at Sandy Run School. Thanks to the teachers and Ruritans who volunteered for our work day in Feb.

Nature Scavenger hunt with Sandy Run School's Kindergarten and last week an Easter egg hunt on the new nature trail!

Installing bluebird boxes at the Gressette Center and Sandy Run School with Columbia Audubon

Buddy Bird habitat lesson with 4-6th grade at Sandy Run! Note the aliens and ostriches!

The SC Farm Bureau Ag Lab has visited all Calhoun County K8 schools with lessons on SC Commodities. Sponsored by our local Calhoun Cty Farm Bureau and the Conservation District

St Matthews K8 7th grade field trip to Riverfront Park with Columbia Park Rangers

SC Forestry Commission program on yes, trees!, at St M K8

St MK8 4th grade garden is producing gorgeous carrots, kale, lettuce, and beets. The 7th grade has started a new garden of their own- just planted for spring

We enjoyed seeing our Members and guests at our Annual Banquet at Holly Oak Farms. And we thanked Bates Houck for his over 40 years of service to the Conservation District.
