Conservation takes center stage in Kewaunee County

Students from Kewaunee County’s three middle schools learned Wednesday how close to home conservation practices are taking place. During the annual Kewaunee County Conservation Day, students traveled to Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy, Kinnard Farms, Wagner Tree Farm, a wind farm in Rosiere, NEW Plastics, and the Besadny Fish Hatchery to learn how conservation practices are used in their everyday life. Soil specialist Jamie Patton showed students how important it is to pay attention to the earth below them.

Kewaunee science teacher Peggy DeGroot says it is important for her students to see these conservation practices first hand.

The annual event is organized by the Kewaunee County UW-Extension office and has been held for over 15 years.
