Homeowner Land Management

  • Wednesday, July 18, 2018, 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Private land ownership represents an incredible opportunity for natural resource conservation and enhancement, but even with the best intentions, this opportunity doesn’t guarantee a good result. Whether you own acres of forest and grassland or a 100 square foot grass strip next to the road, you are a land manager, and keeping the land healthy requires the same approach of working with natural systems and processes. In order to work with nature, we have to understand it. The goal of this program is to address the most important challenges to and opportunities of land ownership in the context of environmental health. We will learn which practices to minimize or avoid and which ones to expand or begin, so that our land is aesthetically pleasing but also ecologically healthy. The class will cover:

  1. Water Management
  2. Building Considerations
  3. Considerations for Turf and Landscape Plants
  4. Invasive Species Management
  5. Wildlife Enhancement and Management
  6. Common Types of Residential Pollutants and Mitigation Strategies
  7. Nutrient Cycling – what is it and why does it matter?

Cost: $30 per person. Deadline for registration: July 17, 2018.
