Now's the time to schedule your school visit!

I know the new year is just getting underway, but before we know if spring will be rolling in and the end of the school year will be looming. That makes now the perfect time to schedule our Holmes Soil & Water Conservation District staff for your in-classroom programs.

Our staff offers a variety of FUN, FREE, HANDS-ON programs that we bring directly to your classroom, and they are all designed with Next Generation Science Standards in mind. 

Here are some examples of programs we offer:

A Holmes County native, Jane joined the Holmes SWCD staff in 2015 after spending 16 years in public relations for a land-grant university. She holds a BS with distinction in agricultural communication from Purdue University and her master's program in mass communication at Purdue focused on science and risk communication. Jane has a passion for education youth about the science of conservation and agriculture and is an active volunteer in local 4-H and Scout programs. She is excited to bring that passion back to Holmes County where she manages educational outreach programs, social media, and fiscal administration for the district. Jane raises horses and sheep on the family farm where she was raised south of Nashville along with her husband Craig and her three children: Aubree, Garrett & Tristan.
