In 2022, third graders from across Covington County participate in a poster contest sponsored by the Covington County Soil & Water Conservation District. This year’s theme was “Healthy Soil: Healthy Life.”
Students, parents, teachers, and conservationists gathered at the Oakwood Lodge this month to recognize the winners of the Covington County Soil & Water Conservation District’s Third Grade Poster Contest, sponsored by Wiregrass RC&D. Also recognized was the Pleasant Home School Envirothon Team, which placed second in the state competition. Approximately 140 people attended the event. Jimmy Stiles, Wildlife Biologist and PhD candidate in Auburn University’s College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Environment entertained and educated the children with his Retiles and Amphibians Presentation.
