The Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District (CSWCD) is taking applications for the workshop through Friday, April 26.

At the workshop, students will spend a week in the field learning about our natural resources and their management in today's environment. They'll participate in hands-on work, guided by natural resource professionals. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in programs that award cash and scholarships.
