Fun Video About Soil





In addition to running this blog, the Michigan Arbor Day Alliance/Eaton Conservation District also oversees the Michigan Water Stewardship Program website. This website is dedicated to providing accurate, up-to-date information on water quality issues and what we as residents can do in our own homes, yards, and businesses, to protect our natural resources. There are a variety of resources on the website – homeowner checklists and informational brochures, a list of local resources’ contact information by county, lesson plans and activities for educators, and online games and songs for kids. The website also takes submissions from the public to our Green News section, which highlights news stories from around the Great Lakes region, and to our educational Videos section.

Recently, we had a video submission from a group of Iowa high school volunteers. The students have produced a music video explaining the importance of soil (note I say soil, not dirt). I invite you to check it out for yourself. I found it entertaining and a great way to pass on information. After all, what better way to teach kids about a topic than to sing about it?

If you have any questions about the submission process or about the Michigan Water Stewardship website, please feel free to contact me (Jennifer Hunnell) at

Here is the link to the video so you can see it for yourself –

And a big Thank You to the students who produced this video. It is a great addition to the website!
