'Introducing a FREE New Curriculum - A Guide to Conducting a Pollinator Field Day'

Be the first to participate in new conservation education activities focusing on the important role that pollinators play in agriculture and habitats. Through a collaboration with the Pollinator Partnership, the National Association of Conservation Districts has developed “A Guide to Conducting a Pollinator Field Day” for K-8. This new curriculum contains activities for the classroom and outdoors, along with evaluation strategies and resources. Each activity has been correlated to education standards and provides a pathway to valuable partnerships with local Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Join NACD staff for a review of the Guide and participate in the activities.
