As part of the fourth annual one day 4-H, held in conjunction with National 4-H Week, six Wilson County 4-H clubs joined various Girl, Cub, and Boy Scout groups for a conservation project at the Kirchoff Family Farm on C.R. 201 in Dewees.

Among the 99 youth and adults joining the 4-H members to assist were one Girl Scout Troop from Wilson County, three Cub Scout Packs from Wilson and Atascosa counties; and five Boy Scout Troops from Wilson, Atascosa, and Karnes counties.

The Scouts and 4-H members planted 2,589 native, drought-tolerant trees and shrubs in an area covering 92,000 square feet as a firebreak. This first step in restoring the 200-acre farm back to a South Texas prairie was conducted Oct. 13-14. The trees also serve as an attractor for pollinating insects and birds, and provide safety and shelter to countless birds, insects, reptiles, and small mammals.

The project was a part of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife-funded program.
