NCSU hosted the 56th Resource Conservation Workshop in June. This provides high school students from across the state an opportunity to learn first-hand about the many facets of natural resource conservation by spending time in the field and classroom hearing from Extension experts. The Friends of Wake Co. Soil and Water Conservation District are very pleased that we were able able to sponsor a rising junior from Middle Creek High School. We try to sponsor a student every year, so keep a lookout for next year’s call for applications.
