Extension sponsoring workshops on conserving nature

January 29, 2015  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue Extension is hosting a one-day event for homeowners and rural landowners to help them maintain the natural resources on their properties.

Participants can chose to attend one of the two "Conserving Nature on Your Land" workshops - Feb. 27 at the Whitley County 4-H Center, 680 W. Squawbuck Road, Columbia City, or Feb. 28 at Turkey Run State Park Inn, 8102 E. Park Road, Marshall.

The program, which will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST, will provide information for developing and enhancing woods, landscapes and other natural resources. There will be various sessions, so participants can choose those that best suit their interests.

Sessions will include topics on tree identification, wildlife inventory, planting and protecting tree seedlings, and multiple other management discussions.

Brian MacGowan, Purdue Extension wildlife specialist, will give an introduction to the session on natural resources management.

"Our program is an opportunity for participants to learn about what interests them the most from leading experts," MacGowan said. "It also provides them a forum to interact with and learn from other homeowners who have shared similar interest in natural resources."

The deadline to register is Feb. 18. Payment of $40 per individual ($55 for couples) must be included with the registration form. Registrations received after that date will have an increased fee.

Participants can find the registration form and more information at https://mdc.itap.purdue.edu/workshops.asp  or register by calling Purdue Extension's The Education Store toll-free at 888-398-4636.
