The Mercer SWCD offers a variety of Pre K to Adult educational programs aimed at fostering an understanding of conservation that can be carried with individuals throughout their lives.
The District’s Education Specialist can bring many hands-on activities to your classroom, 4-H club, Scouts group or other youth group. Programs are available on a wide range of topics and are designed to meet proficiency and content standards. The programs offered by the Mercer SWCD are not limited to those listed below. We can work with you to develop a program or to modify an existing program to meet your specific needs whether the focus be on science, math, language arts, history, nutrition, or anything in between!
Each program is approximately 30-45 minutes in length. The District provides this service FREE OF CHARGE to groups located within Mercer County. Most programs can be adjusted to any age or skill level. For more information or to schedule a program, contact our Education Specialist at [email protected].
