Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery and Russell County Soil Conservation District Lead Way in Environmental Education Proclamation

From Earth Day to Arbor Day, April is jam packed with events, information and MORE, all designed to foster better connections between people and the environment. Because of this, and a commitment to protecting and conserving the natural world, Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery and the Russell County Soil Conservation District have partnered by working with Russell County Judge-Executive Mickey Garner to sign a proclamation declaring April to be National Environmental Education Month in Russell County. Whether you spend a weekend camping with your family or take time to garden, fish or canoe, you’re encouraged to get outdoors, enjoy the weather and spend time connecting with nature.

 

To learn more about National Environmental Education Week, which kicks off April 11th 17th, 2010, visit http://www.eeweek.org for more information. 

 

Looking for ways to better connect with nature? If so, Wolf Creek NFH has some great ideas! For families and others looking for engaging ideas on how to better enjoy and learn about the outdoors, the hatchery reminds the public to check out the new Nature Rocks! Family Nature Club! Beginning in January 2010, the monthly event offers plenty of fun activities, snacks and more for families all with an outdoor theme! There is no charge to attend, and the next program will be held at the Russell County Public Library in Jamestown, Kentucky on Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 from 5 p.m.  6:30 p.m. 

 

Don’t forget too that in celebration of the natural world, the hatchery will host the Earth Day Celebration! on Saturday, April 24th, 2010. Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery (NFH) will be partnering with the Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery, Inc and the Russell County Soil Conservation District to celebrate the arrival of spring and the great outdoors by hosting the hatchery’s annual Earth Day Celebration! The Visitor/Environmental Education Center will open from 8 a.m. CST 4 p.m. CST, and a variety of organizations and agencies will have booths on hand promoting different ways to get connected to the natural world starting at 9 a.m. CST running through 3:30 p.m. CST.
