Everyone can be involved in making sure our Valley is a great place to live! Learn more about our environment by downloading this free kids’ activity book, submit an entry for our poster contest [entries due 31 October 2012 at 4:00 pm], invite us to bring our Stream Table to your club meeting or classroom, or bring your whole family to educational event or volunteer day. The Illinois Valley Soil and Water Conservation District and Watershed Council are here for you!
There also are many other ways to learn more about healthy lands and waters in southern Oregon. In April, the Illinois Valley Watershed Council and SWCD will help put on the Cave Junction Rivers and Forests Festival, a fun, free, and educational event to celebrate our region’s natural resources. Other ways to get involved: Join a Josephine County 4-H or FFA club, visit the Rusk Ranch Nature Center, explore our State Parks, National Forests and Wilderness Areas, or take a youth class at the Siskiyou Field Institute.
Let us know about your favorite ways to be involved in the Illinois Valley, and we will add them to our list!
