Throughout the year, the Ruby Valley Conservation District organizes and hosts a wide variety of educational events. These events usually involve inviting professionals in conservation, ranching, farming, watersheds, etc. to give lectures to interested parties. Another major event is our annual Kids River Resource Day, when we invite elementary school students to a local ranch for a day of interactive activities designed to educate them about the importance of their local watersheds. Reach out to us at email@example.com or (406) 842-5741 x 104 if you would be interested in sponsoring one of our upcoming events, keep an eye on our social media, website and/or newsletter to stay updated on what we have planned!
