Join Paulding SWCD at the fair

PAULDING – The 2017 Paulding County Fair is quickly approaching and the Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is preparing some great activities for you and your family.
Come on out to enjoy some great make-n-take activities as well as meeting the Paulding SWCD staff and board of supervisors, who are happy to highlight the work our office is doing throughout Paulding County.
The Paulding SWCD will have activities on Tuesday, June 13; Wednesday, June 14; and Friday, June 16 from noon-3 p.m. each day.
Visitors to our booth this day will enjoy a make-n-take activity called “Lake in a Bag.” In this activity, visitors will learn that we all enjoy fresh, clean water.
Next, a small amount of green glitter will be added to represent grass clippings that make their way to the lake.
By this time, the lake is getting rather polluted but there is more to be added.
Also on Tuesday, we will have our Streamulator model available to learn about how streams work.
Friday, June 16 Friday, June 16 also will be loaded with fun as visitors will have the opportunity to learn about composting using worms and about water pollution, and enjoy a scavenger hunt through the Black Swamp Nature Center.
Also on Friday, our booth will feature our Enviroscape model, which will allow visitors to see the effects that nonpoint source pollution has on the environment.
Be sure to join the Paulding SWCD at the Paulding County Fair June 13, 14 and 16 to enjoy some great activities and see how our office helps to serve Paulding County, one person at a time.
