WJHS senior studies conservation
Ashley Turner, a rising senior at West Johnston High School, recently attended the weeklong Resource Conservation Workshop at N.C. State University.
Turner was one of 100 students across the state who attended the workshop. Four Oaks Bank and Trust Co. sponsored Turner.
During the week, students visited Falls Lake and learned about watershed management, visited Clemmons Educational State Forest and learned about forestry management, toured the NCSU research farm at Lake Wheeler and had extensive soils training.
The students were exposed to new technology in managing natural resources and met many professionals in the conservation field.
The N.C. Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the NCDA&CS Division of Soil and Water sponsored the workshop.
