Conservation Education

-Diane Sand, Education Information Coordinator-

Conservation education and public outreach are very important to Crawford SWCD. The district offers many hands-on classroom programs covering many conservation topics that meet the Ohio Academic Content Standards. 

Generally all of the presentations take 30 to 45 minutes.  The classroom presentations are prepared for single class occupancy, but multiple classes can be combined, with advanced notice. My schedule fills up quickly, and scheduling will be made on a first come first serve basis.

All of our programs are free of charge to any Crawford County school or organization. Below is a listing of classroom and adult programs offered.
