Your family is invited to the Eighth Annual Kids Day for Conservation Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Benton County Fairgrounds Arena in Corvallis. Kids Day for Conservation is free and open to the public. Numerous organizations and businesses will conduct a wide variety of natural resource activities suitable for children of all ages. KDC is designed to educate and help kids make a difference for conservation in their community.

Build a bird house to take home, do a nature art project, explore a soil tunnel, or visit with the Sheriff’s rescue dogs. Families will learn how to conserve energy and water, see how wildfires spread, and how to protect your family from them. Kids will have the opportunity to explore alternative energy sources including wind turbines and solar cells. This is only a sample of all you can see and do at this annual family event.

Food and drink will be available for purchase. For more information, visit:  http://extension.oregonstate.edu/benton/KDC
