Visit Madison SWCD’s Booth at County Fair

The Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) invites fairgoers to stop by their booth in the Farm Bureau building during the 2024 Madison County Fair.

Since 2015, the Madison County Farm Bureau has shared their space with Madison SWCD, which will be staffing a booth Wednesday through Saturday.

This year, the Badger Creek Lake Watershed Model will be on display to show how water runs off the land, into the creek, and eventually flows to the lake. Visitors can also take a quiz to test their knowledge and win prizes!  There will be free Water Cycle posters available, as well as conservation-themed temporary tattoos. 

There will also be an opportunity to learn about the North and Middle Rivers Watershed Management Authority, which recently received a grant to develop a Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan and is seeking public input.

Madison SWCD also encourages the public to attend the Conservation Awards presentation on Wednesday, July 17 at 5:45 p.m. at the North Show Ring (before the Queen and King Contest). This year, the SWCD is recognizing the Kincade Farmland Trust for their land stewardship efforts. 

Madison SWCD’s booth at County Fair is a great place to learn more about the Conservation District and its programs and activities in Madison County; or visit for more information. Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
