Rose Sharbeno, with the Calcasieu Soil and Water Conservation District, stirred student imaginations at Hornbeck High School about the things provided by forests.
Sharbeno visited the third grade classes here.
The students viewed a powerpoint presentation, completed a work booklet and played “stewardship jeopardy” to become “champion stewards.” The students learned that  forests provide timber, clean water, wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities including hunting, hiking and camping.
Stewardship Week is a nationwide effort sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) to foster an appreciation among students for natural resources including soil, air, water, plants and animals. 
Calcasieu Soil and Water Conservation District (http://calcasieuswcd.shutterfly.com) is a member of the National Association of Conservation Districts (www.nacdnet.org) which oversees the Stewardship Week program. Stewardship Week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation.
