Water Rocks! presents the Conservation Station—a mobile learning center that educates audiences of all ages about the importance of healthy soil and clean water.  It will be stopping at the Audubon County Fair on Saturday, July 18 from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

Visitors to the Conservation Station can learn how everyone can do their part to help preserve and protect soil and water—essential natural resources. The free, fun, hands-on activities and demonstrations for kids and adults teach about watersheds and the effects of rainfall on the land.
