East Pottawattamie SWCD has our very own Conservation Education Trailer. It includes an erosion demonstration with a rainfall simulator. If you wish to have an SWCD educator demonstrate the display to a group, class or club, please contact us at (712) 482-6408.

Conservation Superhero Afterschool Club kicked off in all our East Pottawattamie Schools in September! All 2nd-3rd grade students in AHST, Walnut and Riverside Community Schools have the opportunity to participate in a FREE afterschool club monthly! Each meeting we focus on a different "conservation superhero"...soil, water, energy. land, air, and plants...as part of the NRCS Whobuddie curriculum.  We engage in hands-on lessons that focus on how to take care of our land, how agriculture impacts our community, and how it all impacts the survival of planet Earth!  This program is sponsored by East Pottawattamie SWCD and East Pottawattamie Farm Bureau. Community members/Volunteers are always welcome to come join us --we meet every Tuesday afternoon at a different school. Contact Jamie Meek; East Pott. SWCD Education Coordinator 712-482-6408 .
