Hello!

First, thank you to everyone who was able to participate last year with a submission for our “Conservation Edition”!! Our local newspapers publish articles and pictures on our behalf as a way to continue promoting conservation in the area. It’s getting that time of year when I need your expertise. You are invited to participate by writing an article, submitting a poem or even a photo for our upcoming “Conservation Edition” published for our 83rd Annual Meeting scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. in person at the 4-H Community Building in Council Grove, KS. You are more than welcome to attach any photos or clip art to your article. The articles can relate to conservation practices like no-till, gardening, wildlife buffers, pollinators, poems, photos or all of the above as just a few examples. I look forward to hearing from you!!

Please send me your materials by December 2, 2022.

Hope you have a great fall season!!
