Ye Accawmacke Garden Club sent Brittnae' Patterson of Exmore, VA last year. The Eastern Shore Soil and Water Conservation District assisted with travel expenses. A Cascades Hike, a Dairy Science tour on an Agriculture Farm, Volleyball at Mountain Lake, cookouts and Water Quality/Nutrient Management activities are just a few events that were experienced at the Youth Conservation Camp. Above are pictures of the great time Brittnae' had at the VASWCD Conservation Camp while learning about lake ecology, shoreline erosion, GIS technology, stream morphology, tree identification, karst geology and fisheries management. Youth Conservation Camp is conducted by the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Visit their website to learn more and see the current year's pictures and slide show.
