The final event of the county-wide celebration is hosted at the Environmental Resources Center. All are welcome to attend.

Conservation Conversation

Spend the day making connections with organizations and agencies from across the region and learn about exciting work that is going on right here in our backyard! The Conversation is a day-long event, and includes displays, posters, and speaker sessions. This event is meant as an opportunity to bring people together to share ideas and develop collaborations, with the shared vision of conservation. All are welcome to attend.

Animal Investigator

What critter made that track? Whose scat is that? Find out how to identify native wildlife without having to actually see them by the various signs they leave behind. Make a cast of an animal footprint and get hands-on experience with some of the unique tools scientists use to find and follow wildlife.

Helping Wildlife at Home

You don’t always have to go miles out into the wilderness to experience and help nature. Discover fun facts about native plants and animals and simple ways to make your backyard a certified wildlife habitat. Receive seeds from wildflowers to plant so you can provide a hangout for animals that visit your house.
