ROCKPORT — Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (KLSWCD) will hold an Environmental Education Fundraiser, Tuesday, March 10, from 5 to 9 p.m., at Flatbread Company, 100 Commercial Street (Rt 1) in Rockport.
Flatbread Company will donate a portion of all pizza sales from the evening in support of the conservation district’s K-12 education programs, which are offered free to all Knox and Lincoln county students throughout the year. These programs include the Conservation Education Fair at Union Fairgrounds in September for middle and elementary students, the national conservation poster contest for grades K-5, Read ME Agriculture for grades K-4 and the Maine Envirothon competition for grades 9-12.
All who attend will have the chance to view the winning entries from this year’s conservation poster contest, Where Would We BEE Without Pollinators. This winter, KLSWCD program manager Rebecca Jacobs presented learning sessions about healthy soil to 34 Knox and Lincoln K-5 classrooms and received 457 poster submissions.
“Save the date and join us to support environmental education in Knox and Lincoln counties!” said KLSWCD, in a news release.
