Parachute 6th Grade 2016-2017

Dennis Davidson and Rick Norman, Bookcliff Conservation District conservation technicians, instructed the 6th grade class at the Grand Valley Middle School in Parachute.  The students learned about watersheds, enhancing the lesson with hands-on activities with the riparian trailer and how healthy riparian areas function.  

Dennis followed up later in the month with a soils lesson.  Thank you Grand Valley Middle School for including us in your educational experience!  Watch for additional activities throughout the year.
