Conservation District’s Annual 5th Grade Field Days a Success

On May 14th and 15th, 2019, the Conservation District held their annual 5th Grade Conservation Field Days at the Millport Fairgrounds, open to all 5th grade students of Potter County. In total, 160 students from Austin, Coudersport, Oswayo Valley, Northern Potter, and Galeton School Districts were able to attend – making this one of the District’s best-attended education events of the year. 

Stations included Storm water education with Danielle Rhea of Penn State Extension, Macroinvertebrates with Conservation District Watershed Specialist Jared Dickerson, Birding with Conservation District Educator Emily Shosh, Maple Syrup Production with Conservation District Resource Conservationist Glenn Dunn II, Waterfowl and Aquatic Habitats with Wildlife Conservation Officer Mark Fair, and Tree Identification with DCNR Service Forester Eric Monger. Students learned the role each of these topics plays in conservation, citizen science, and environmental stewardship.

Special thanks go to McKean County Conservation District and our local DCNR State Parks for their generous loan of equipment, aforementioned agency presenters, and the help of the Millport Fairgrounds Association.

District Educator Emily Shosh discusses Raptors, waterfowl, and songbirds in Potter County and led students in birding with the use of binoculars. A grand total of 29 different bird species were identified over the course of the two Field Days!

DCNR Service Forester Eric Monger leads students through identification of common trees in Potter County. Each student received a free handbook on PA trees to take home.

I don't know if Eric is the one who went out of his way to help us when we hit a deer a couple October's ago. If so Thank You from the bottom of our hearts. A wonderful person. Unfortunately in all the commotion and stress we failed to get his name.
