Established on May 1, 1946 to promote the conservation and wise use
of our county's natural resources


Conservation Field Days provide an educational opportunity for local 6th grade students to gain an appreciation for our natural environment and the need for continued conservation efforts. This two day, fall event is sponsored by the Cortland Co. SWCD and hosted by 4-H Camp Owahta, annually playing host to about 500 students.

Local and state conservation specialists, public service organizations, environmentalists, and volunteers donate their time, energy, and expertise every year to provide presentation and hands on learning activities for students.

If you are interested in helping out or volunteering to present; or wondering if your local school district participates in this annual event, feel free to contact us at (607)-756-5991.
