Every day you walk on soil, but you cannot really see what is in the soil beneath your feet and understand the value of it. Today's youth increasingly exhibit a disconnect with the products they use daily. When asked where their food comes from, children often reply, "The grocery store." Kansans need to understand and appreciate that it is necessary to protect soil because the food, fiber, and fuel we use daily come from the soil, not the store. With this is mind, the Miami County Conservation District in Paola, Kansas, came up with the idea of the Soil Tunnel Trailer as a tool to teach about the wonderful natural resource´┐Żsoil and with its success there soon reached a need for a second trailer, so the Rush County Conservation District, in LaCrosse, Kansas constructed a second Soil Tunnel Trailer for easier access in Western Kansas. With the availability of both Soil Tunnel Trailers, Kansans will learn more about the soil and connect it to their everyday lives.
