Jackson County Environmental Field Day

 

Jackson County 4th graders were recently treated to a dose of educational fun at an Environmental Field Day sponsored by the Jackson County Conservation District.  Representatives from Jackson County Farm Bureau, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, The Kentucky Division of Foresty, local electric co-op Jackson Energy, and the Water District worked together to teach at the event.

Jackson County Farm Bureau presented an ATV Safety program to more than 200 fourth graders who attended the event. The students learned what Kentucky law says about riding ATV’s. They were given information on how to ride safely and the types of safety equipment they should be wearing.
