Arbor Day

Arbor Day was April 29, 2022 and the Club planted a tree at the new Brandon Valley Inspiration School on East 41st street with 46 students attending from the third grade class. Each received a packet with Arbor Day and League information. The students asked a variety of questions as Phil Langner explained Arbor Day, water testing and the Leagues history. After the presentation, the students went outside to the tree site. KSYF was present to report on this event.

Other club members planted trees for Arbor Day. Harry Goeden planted trees with his grandchildren. Doug and Gary Harr also planted trees in honor of Arbor Day.

2022 Sioux Empire Water Festival

The Sioux Empire Water Festival is an educational event where area children learn about water. This precious resource is a central factor in all aspects of our lives. The goal of the festival is to increase awareness of the many uses of water and to preserve its quality for future generations. This event is held once a year for 4th graders from Sioux Falls area schools.

The Sioux Falls Izaak Walton has a booth that educates the youth on water issues, evasive species, and bugs in the environment.
