The Morgan Conservation District has decided to showcase spring on the farm by hosting its annual “Morgan Baby Animal Farm Fun Days”. The Conservation Districts have been active in the community since the dust bowls of the 1930’s. Historically they have played a major role in educating farmers and ranchers about the land and how to protect our resources. However, recently the concern has become one of educating future generations. Agriculture is becoming a thing of the past with many children thinking their food comes simply from a grocery store. The Morgan Conservation District is determined to teach kids a love for the process of farming and the natural resources which make it possible. With this effort they hope to ignite a desire for farming in the future. Morgan’s Baby Animal Farm Fun Days will be educational and a lot of fun. The day will bring community and local growers together for discussion and perhaps even some planting. There will be bounce houses, pony rides, a giant sand box, farm equipment, train rides, concessions, face painting and of course, baby animals. The Conservation District is hoping this event will help to form a partnership with Morgan’s growing populous. This partnership will help to protect and preserve agriculture for many generations to come. The Conservation District invites everyone to join them at the Morgan County Fair Grounds on the 4th and 5th of May 2017. Friday, the event will run from 4-7pm, and Saturday, from 10am-5pm. Admission will be $5 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under. All of the proceeds from the event will be used to increase conservation efforts within Morgan County. A special thanks goes out to Staker Parsons Co., the Morgan County Council and the many local producers for their help and sponsorship. Hopefully “Morgan Baby Animals Farm Fun Days” will become a part of the many traditions which make Morgan feel small even as it grows.
