Education Programs

The division partners with local districts, the association and other conservation partners in many outreach efforts. Events attempt to increase awareness of natural resources and ecosystems while encouraging life-long stewardship.

Student populations are reached in several ways: a curriculum focusing on connections between food, land and people (FLP), environmental science competitions and contests with top-scoring individuals and teams earning college scholarship and cash prizes. Every effort is made to help students develop the knowledge and skills required to step into future leadership positions in natural resource management.

Adults are reached through train-the-trainer workshops, awards celebrations, public outreach events such as Earth Day and the NC State Fair and district field days.

During program year 2016-2017, more than 168,000 people were impacted by soil and water conservation outreach programs and events.
