The annual Environmental Awareness Week was recently observed at Bedford County Agriculture and Education Center on Midland Road. On various days, local elementary school classes were brought to the center to learn about farm animals and about caring for the environment. A variety of local agencies had booths or demonstrations. For some students, it’s the first time they’ve gotten the chance to pet a farm animal, say educators.
