Milkweed Pod Collection
Carroll SWCD will be collecting milkweed pods for the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative. Community members can bring dried pods from September 1 to October 30 to our office in Carrollton.
We ask that the pods you bring in are dry. Wait until the pod turns gray or brown in color (see photo on left.) The pods can put be put into paper bags to be brought in. Please call 330-627-9852 with questions.
Back to school ideas?
Hello teachers of Carroll County! We hope that you had the opportunity to stop by our fair booth and check out all the cool things that we can use to teach conservation. Now that you are planning your curriculum for the school year, why not get us involved?
The virtual watershed sandbox that was on display in our fair booth was a huge hit. This 3D model uses a projected topographic map over a sandbox to teach anything from topography, watersheds, or erosion. Kids get to push the sand around and see how the elevation lines change. They can also simulate a rain fall to see where the water will go in a watershed. See the image below.
We also have other hands-on displays that we can bring to your classroom to teach students about conservation, erosion, soil, topography, agriculture, etc. Just let us know what you are working on and we would be happy to come up with a lesson to fit your needs. As always, the use of our equipment and the time of our employees is FREE. Contact our office at 330-627-9852 or email email@example.com.
