Why: To give 5th graders the opportunity to educate themselves and others with their conservation knowledge of:

  1.     Soil and Water…We can’t grow without it?
  2.     Soil is not dirt, but a product of the interaction of parent material, organisms, climate, topography, and time.
  3.    The influence that soil has on water quality.
  4.     Soil and water are two of the Earth’s most abundant resources; conservation is the key to preserving them.
