Stokes 5th Graders get Environmental Awareness

The Stokes County Soil & Water Conservation District hosted their annual Environmental Awareness Day at Hanging Rock State Park on Thursday, April 19, 2012 ... and this year DRBA got to help with the Tub'O'Bugs program developed by our own Wayne Kirkpatrick. DRBA staffer, Dale Swanson, along with Chad Lange and Sara Jo Durham, talked with class after class of Stokes County 5th graders about the importance of healthy streams and all of the remarkable "fish food" that lives in them in the form of macro-invertebrates. -->
It was a lot of fun for us and it sure looked like the children enjoyed the creepy-crawlies while they absorbed just a little environmental science.
