Environmental Stewardship on Private Property

Saturday, October 19, 2019 - 2:00pm

How to Enhance Biodiversity, Reduce Wildfire Risk, Save Money, and Connect to Your Land
Local ecologist Chris Drake will be giving a presentation to land owners who want to learn how to care for nature on their land.
Chris’s talk will not only explore the history of land stewardship but will also present research that shows the environmental, social, and economic benefits of stewarding land.
He will also discuss:
• techniques that he uses for controlling the five or so very worst invasive plants,
• specific ways to reduce wildfire risk,
• bird and bat boxes, and
• other wildlife habitat enhancements.
He’ll wrap up with a quick look at trails, campsites, and other low-impact ways to recreate in nature.
Join us at Blackburn Lake Nature Reserve. Refreshments will be provided. Suggested donation $5 to $10.
