Fourth Grader wins Columbia Conservation District Poster Contest
July 16, 2020
DAYTON–Graci Turner, a Fourth-grade student from Dayton Elementary, won the 2020 "Save the Salmon, Save the Orca" poster contest, sponsored by the Columbia Conservation District. The contest was held during the COVID-19 school closures and included 14 participating students.
The Conservation District's educational outreach program encouraged students from Dayton and Starbuck Elementary Schools to learn about the environment and conservation practices to help protect the habitat of Endangered Species Act Salmon in our nearby Tucannon and Touchet Rivers. These Salmon play a significant role in the food chain for the South Puget Sound Orca.
The Conservation District's desire is that this year's contest will fuel interest from not only the students, but all community members that have concerns about conservation and our natural resources.
Participants displayed their talent and creativity, said the Conservation District.
