What is the Conservation Tour?

County conservation districts of the OKI Regional Conservation Council take turns sponsoring the Annual Conservation Tour.  This event offers narrated visits to well-planned and wisely managed places that demonstrate successful conservation practices.  In the late summer or fall, Annual Tour patrons have visited gardens, croplands, orchards, vineyards, pastures, hayfields, green houses, dairy barns, pig pens, chicken coops, parks, fairgrounds, nature preserves, ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, a river boat, canoes, historical sites, field research facilities, woodlands, wastewater treatment plants, small businesses, farmers’ markets, construction sites, and food processing industries throughout the Tri-State.

While show-and-tell education is the primary goal, the Annual Conservation Tour is not above enjoying a tasty lunch or identifying large cylindrical hay bales as “cow cocoons.”  It’s easy to strike up conversations and take photos while seeing a bit of our world on the Annual Tour. A modest registration fee may apply to tours that rely on charter bus service.
