The Grand Lake/Wabash Watershed Alliance partners with many different organizations to bring watershed and conservation activities to the area. The Mercer County Pheasants Forever is hosting Ringneck Day on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at Ohio Progressive Sportsmen’s Club. Ringnecks are young pheasants and this free event is open to youth ages 6-12. Preregistration is required and a parent or guardian must attend with the youth. To register or for more info email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 419-268-0114 and leave a message.
Activites for Ringneck Day include:
What does the dust bowl mean to me? Includes a conservation craft. The dust bowl meant more than muddy rain in New York and grit in your oatmeal. It meant a change in farming practices for everyone in the United States.
Why is habitat important? Making barn swallow nests and learning how we need to help them with their habitat.
What is conservation? Living history activity. Conservation isn’t something one person can accomplish. It takes at least 2! Learn just how hard it is by using an old fashioned two person crosscut saw to make a tree cookie.
