The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District believes that good habits start early and that students can develop an understanding of conservation at an early age, carrying those lessons with them throughout their lives.
Environmental Education isn’t just about the outdoors – it teaches children scientific methods, creativity, and teamwork while enhancing reading, writing and math skills! We offer a variety of workshops for educators of all grade levels and will work with you to tailor workshops to your school or center’s specific needs. A minimum of twelve participants is required, and there are varying costs to enroll to cover the costs of books and supplies dependent on which workshop that you attend. Credits offered for some workshops. Click on the workshop logos below or contact our office for more information! Email or Call (513) 772-7645 and ask for Gwen (x13).
