2004 marks the 25th Anniversary of Conservation Field Days in Winnebago County. This information and education event began in 1979 and has been a strong program ever since.
To help recognize the 25th Anniversary, LCC Chair Nancy Barker and LCC member Steve Rankin attended the opening day and traveled with the children to each of the 4 learning stations: Water Quality, Soils, Wildlife and Forestry.
Over 12,000 4th grade children from the Neenah Public and Parochial, and Menasha Parochial Schools have participated this event.
The children learn about forestry, wildlife, soils and water quality. Several agencies participate in the event including Winnebago County Land & Water Conservation, UW-Extension, NRCS, and DNR.
