“Conservation Day” held through the University of Illinois Extension Office is a program that is designed to teach area youth important lessons about conservation in agriculture. This year the Christian County Extension Office held their Conservation Day at Kehias Farms near Pana, and had many different activities planned to help teach area youth.
Charlotte Schuricht, the Christian County Ag in the Classroom Teacher with the Extension appeared as a guest on a special edition of the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show Live from Christian County Conservation Day, and shared how the event featured different activities designed to teach the students about a number of different topics.
Several area organizations participated in the event, teaching the kids about different topics in a number of fun and interactive ways.
Schuricht shared how one of the challenges of teaching students about agriculture, is being able to connect to them in a way that makes it fun and interesting for them to learn.
