The Monroe County Soil & Water Conservation District is excited to launch The Nature Files: Uncovering the World of Conservation! On the last Friday of each month, the MCSWCD will release a new video dedicated to a topic in Conservation. Each video will highlight conservation efforts in Monroe County, and the unique issues facing us in Southern Indiana.
For our first episode, How Soil Connects Us, we spoke with Jon Eldon of Indiana University about his life and experiences as a soil scientist. In his discussion, Eldon talks about his journey from the son of a produce supplier, to an ecologist and forester, to a soil scientist for IU. Along the way, we got to learn about the insights his journey gave him, like how people living on a small island avoid depleting their very limited resources and how soil health can connect all of us. Check out the video below to learn more about Eldon and his relationship with our soil!
