The Coon Valley Conservation Club, or CVCC, was established in 1940 and sits on 160 acres of land just outside Coon Valley, Wisconsin. In 1941, they had their first Conservation Day Celebration in honor of the progress that had been made on the Coon Valley soil erosion project. This project was an effort made by conservationists and farmers to combat the failure to adapt farming methods to prevent and combat soil erosion, which ruined approximately 282 million acres of farmland since the area was originally settled. The event united farmers, sportspersons, and the general public.
