KEENE, N.H. — The Cheshire County Conservation District, in partnership with Jeff Littleton of Moosewood Ecological LLC, present the second installment in its Conservation Plant Sale workshop series. The next workshop, titled Ecological Landscape Design: Native Plants and Wildlife, will take place on March 7, 2017 from 10am-12pm in the Ruth Huntress Auditorium at the Keene Public Library.
Learn how to minimize impacts to the natural environment while creating a comfortable and pleasing outdoor living space. At this workshop, you will investigate the basics of site planning and ecological landscape design and management as a means to restore or enhance your property using native plants to attract a variety of wildlife. Other topics to be discussed include structural and floral diversity for wildlife, habitat needs, and managing invasive plants, as well as some of the native species available from the Conservation District’s annual Plant Sale. Since this is not a one-size-fits-all workshop we can explore many landscapes from city lots to rural properties that will move beyond traditional landscapes. We’ll even move beyond the yard to the woodlands to enliven your outdoor experience.
Wildlife conservation has been a hot topic for decades: from the birds to the bees and everything in between. It is our collective efforts that help make a difference as land stewards on any size property. We hope you can join us. Registration for this event is hosted on Eventbrite. For additional information please contact the Conservation District office at 603-756-2988 x115 or send email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cheshire County Conservation District promotes the conservation and responsible use of our natural and agricultural resources for the people of Cheshire County by providing technical, financial, and educational assistance. Our goal is to encourage the stewardship of healthy soils, productive ecologically sound farms, diverse wildlife, productive sustainable forests, healthy watersheds, and clean water to ensure those resources are available for future generations. Established in 1945, the Conservation District operates out of Walpole, NH where we work alongside the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and other conservation partners.
