Congratulations to the 2017 Conservation Poster Contest Winners!

Each year the Bergen County Soil Conservation District and the New Jersey Association of Conservation Districts sponsors the New Jersey Conservation Poster Contest. This year’s poster contest topic was “Healthy Soils Are Full of Life!”. Students in grades 2-12  learned all they could about the importance of healthy soil. Productive soils are the foundation of any healthy ecosystem. As the world’s population grows and demand for food production increases, it’s essential that we work together to protect and enhance our soils. Students found out about the soil in their area and learned what their community is doing to help.
