Teaching kids about our most important natural resource brought together several Crook County entities. The Crook County Natural Resource District, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), Audubon Society, Project Learning Tree, and Crook County 4-H, along with help from the Bearlodge FFA and Devils Tower FFA spent time in local schools with the 4H2O Water Fair to teach elementary students about water education.

During this biannual event, students in third through sixth grade in Sundance and Hulett Elementary along with Moorcroft third graders, participated in fun activities about water, learned how to save it, take care of it and how we use water in our everyday lives. All of the water we have now is all we have ever had on earth.

Students learned the importance of water conservation, how aquifers are designed and even how thinning a forest correctly helps to save water. For more information about this activity or about the 4-H program, contact the Extension Office at 283-1192.
