Conservation Corner at the Meigs County Fair
Stop by and visit us this week at the Conservation Corner at the Meigs County Fair.
Two booths staffed by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Meigs Soil and Water Conservation District, respectively, and displays by the United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Athens-Meigs Farm Bureau.
This is the fourth year for the Conservation Corner, which is located in the Grange Building at the Rock Springs Fairgrounds.
There will be contests and giveaways each day; youths can take a chance on a fishing pole/tackle box combo given away daily by the Meigs County ACTT (Active Conservationists Teaming Together) group, a consortium of Meigs County sportsmen’s groups, and the Meigs SWCD will be giving away a bluebird house every day.
Meigs SWCD education coordinator Jenny Ridenour will have daily youth activities that change every day, and crafts for youngsters on Tuesday, 10 a.m. to noon.
The Division of Wildlife will have its fish tank with Ohio fish on display all week long, as well as an assortment of native reptiles, and of course there will be plenty of information about conservation programs for landowners, hunting and fishing, and much more.
