Connecticut's Conservation Districts are dedicated to educating youth and adults alike about the value of conserving our natural resources.
The conservation districts work closely with many partners to promote conservation education in their local areas through a variety of programs such as:
Each Year some Conservation Districts offer materials to schools and churches based on a new Conservation Theme. Order your Stewardship packet in January.
The Envirothon was organized by a handful of volunteers with a vision to bring natural resource conservation, and environmental education to tomorrow's farmers, conservationists, teachers, consumers, voters, decision-makers and conservation district staff and board members.
The Envirothon is a hands-on outdoor competition for high school aged youth that test's student's knowledge and understanding of soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and a current issue that varies from year to year.
