Tree Seedling & Fish Fingerling Sale
Every April, Clark SWCD provides tree seedlings & fish fingerlings available for sale to local residents. The species of fish fingerlings and tree seedlings we have chosen will provide you with a well-rounded variety that will fit into your pond or landscape plans. Additionally, we also offer bird nesting boxes and feeders along with wildflower seeds.
Future Farmers of America - Soils Judging Competition
Every September, Clark SWCD hosts the Clark County Land Judging Contest for the 5 FFA Chapters within Clark County. The FFA Land Judging Contest educates students how to evaluate the soil and land use for both rural and urban applications. Four soil pits are dug 48” deep and 48” wide so a team of 4 students can individually judge the pits.
Rural teams are required to evaluate each pit site for agricultural purposes and determine slope, erosion, soil texture, depth, and drainage. The urban teams evaluate the site according to their slope, land form, flooding hazard, soil stability, soil texture, depth to seasonal high water table and depth to bedrock.
The Clark SWCD has been hosting this contest for over 50 years and enjoys the opportunity to work with and educate the area FFA Chapters regarding proper land use practices for rural and urban applications.
