Franklin County Education Outreach

In 2015, conservation districts educated 100,000 students statewide about agriculture, farming, wildlife, and (of course) conservation! Alabama is blessed with an abundance of natural resources and natural beauty. Conservation districts offer a number of educational programs to show students how to be good stewards of our natural resources so future generations can enjoy the same Alabama the Beautiful we know and love. Contact your district administrative coordinator if you’d like to bring an educational program to your school or group, and be sure to check out what’s available on the state level too.

The Franklin County Enviro-thon Competition is held each year in March. We have a training day that consist of training in five areas:  soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife and current issue. The competition consist of a written test in each subject and a presentation given by each team pertaining to the current issue. The winner of the county competition advances to state and possibly nationals.
