About Our Tunnels
The District owns and operates two interpretive educational tunnels that demonstrate environmental principles on soil and water health. These tunnels were built for the Midland Conservation District for educational workshops on soil and water health. They are available to be rented for your event, or we can deliver them to your event for a fee. Please Contact Us for any questions, rental agreement and terms for using the tunnels.
The earth tunnel
The Earth Tunnel helps explain soil, water health and wetland restoration. Inside the tunnel, you will observe underground wildlife habitat and layers of the soil. A garden is depicted on one top side of the garden, while the other side depicts wetland habitat.
The water Tunnel
The water tunnel shows the difference in river pollution. On one side of the tunnel, pollution and its effects are displayed, which is contrasted with the other side which depicts the signs of a clean river. This tunnel also describes the water cycle.
