Bettie Jacobs also combines her day job with her passion - conservation. She's the coordinator/educator with the Jay County Soil and Water Conservation District. She's also the leader of the Portland 4-H Soil and Water Club. When she took over the club a few years ago, the club had not one member. She drafted her niece and enlisted a few other kids. Now the club has grown to 10 members, and she's tickled. "Conservation was very big with my father, and I want to leave the same legacy."

Jacobs, known as the "Worm Lady" to students in the county for her entertaining school programs, said her 4-H group visits the Loblolly wetland each season. "A lot of people don't know this exists out here," she said. "Not enough people take advantage of it. That's a bald eagle in that dead tree over there … now where are you going to see that?"
This trip, her kids helped plant the plugs of wetland grasses. "Conservation is in the hands of our future," said Jacobs, a Jay County REMC consumer, "… and these kids are our future."
