Land conservation practices are not typical areas of expertise for most young people, but you will get a pleasant and educational surprise when you view these landscape miniatures.
Each exhibit is built with much care and perseverance to display modern conservation techniques. You will see examples of strip cropping, natural woodland preservation, strategic land clearing, hedgerow planting, crop residue use, pasture management, terracing, pond sites, cover crops, mulching, waste management, field windbreaks, irrigation systems, and much more.
The exhibits are judged on overall workmanship, authenticity, overall appearance, and -- of course -- on clear display of conservation practices. Don't miss these miniature landscapes.
