Eighth grade students in Tri-Basin NRD are invited to Sacramento-Wilcox Wildlife Management Area in September for Rainwater Basin Conservation Day. Each group attends eight 20-minute sessions presented by agency representatives and private citizens. Students attending the conservation day participate in interdisciplinary activities with topics that include: aquatic life, surveying, water management, water quality, soils, and identifying native plants and trees. Informal, hands-on activities predominate, all sessions taking place outdoors. Students are also provided lunch at the end of the program. This event is coordinated by Tri-Basin NRD and is partially funded by the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture.
Rainwater Basin Conservation Day for 2017 will be held September 21.
