"...land must be nurtured; not plundered and wasted."

~Hugh Hammond Bennett, Father of Soil Conservation

Today teams will be presented with a challenging natural resources scenario.  As you brainstorm with your team to prepare for your presentation we challenge you to be forward thinking as North Carolina's very own Hugh Hammond Bennett later deemed to be the Father of Soil Conservation.
