Educational Programs

Future Farmers of America from Payette and other area high schools take part in annual state soil judging competition to demonstrate what they've learned about soil properties and site potential.  Soil judging is one of many educational activities that PSWCD supports.

Education is a big part of the mission of the Payette SWCD.  We work to promote awareness of agriculture and natural resource issues in Payette County.  Our programs include outreach and education for both youth and adults, such as our annual soil health symposium for agriculture producers, and sponsorship of "EnviroThon," "Ag in the Classroom," and other events for students throughout our service area.
