Environmental Field Days

Each year, the Watauga Cooperative Extension assists the county's Soil and Water department with Environmental Field Days. Over 300 of the county's 5th graders from most of the county schools come out each year to the Valle Crucis Community Park to learn about the environment, rotating through different stations. This year, Meghan Baker introduced the kids to the basic principles of Integrated Pest Management while Karee Mackey taught kids the finer points of cultivating earthworms and their benefits to soil through vermicomposting.
