Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Workshop Series

Are you interested in enhancing your wildlife habitat? The Wayne Conservation District is excited to announce the second program in a series of workshops focusing on wildlife habitat enhancement. Wildlife food plots can provide opportunities to view wildlife or develop a healthier wildlife population if done properly.

A field day is scheduled for November 8, 2014 from 10 am to 12 noon. This is a follow-up workshop to discuss the success of the first planting and evaluate the fall plantings. The first workshop focused on the proper operation of the no-till rental equipment. A wide variety of seeds were planted using both the new 4’ no-till Kasko seeder and the larger 7’ no-till drill. 

This program will take place at the Wayne County Farm on Bethel School Road at the intersection of Buckingham Road. For more information please contact Heidi Ferber of the Wayne Conservation District at 570-253-0930.
