Backyard Woods Workshop (2 day session)

Thursday, May 10th, 2018, 6:00 PM
Location: Cascades Library, Whitfield Place 21030, Potomac Falls, Virginia

Small lots are a big deal. The vast majority of landowners in Virginia own less than 10 acres. By enhancing wooded areas or creating natural areas on your lot, you can enjoy recreation, aesthetics, wildlife and improved water quality and the air you breathe. Owners of even just a few acres can make a positive difference in their environment through planning and implementing simple stewardship practices learned at this workshop.

This is a two-day workshop - May 10 & 17. There will be a one-day session on May 12 in Leesburg (use the same registration link).

Join the Virginia Department of Forestry, Virginia Cooperative Extension,  Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Forests for the Bay and PEC for this great workshop!

The workshop will use the latest edition of the award winning manual, The Woods in Your Backyard: Learning to Create and Enhance Natural Areas Around Your Home. This full-color 108-page workbook helps woodland owners identify goals for their land, and walks through the steps to success. Whether you are interested in converting lawn to forest, creating wildlife habitat, or providing a useful outdoor space for your family, this program is for you.

Free & includes lunch!
