2023 Resource Conservation Workshop

Resource Conservation Workshop

Our District is sponsoring 2 students from Yadkin Valley Career Academy to attend the Resource Conservation Workshop during the week of June 25 – June 30th, 2023. Jacey McCurdy is a rising sophomore, and Shyann Bennett is a rising junior. The RCW is a weeklong workshop held at NC State University and focuses on the management of natural resources. 

It is sponsored by the NC Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts in conjunction with the NC Division of Soil and Water Conservation, NC State University Crop and Soil Science Department, and the Soil and Water Conservation Society High Hammond Bennett Chapter. Students receive guidance from natural resource professionals to learn about soil characteristics, soil conservation, wildlife, fisheries management, forest management, air quality, water quality, watershed management, and non-agricultural uses for soils.
