The Woods in Your Backyard: A Sustainable Landscapes Workshop; 9 a. m.–3:30 p. m.

This one-day workshop is designed specifically (but not exclusively) for smaller landscapes. These small lots are a big deal, for the vast majority of Pennsylvania’s landowners have less than 10 acres. This land, wooded or not, can provide benefits. By enhancing wooded areas or creating natural areas on your lot, you can enjoy recreation, aesthetics, wildlife, improved water quality and reduced energy costs. Owners of even the smallest landscapes can make a positive difference in their environment through planning and implementing simple stewardship practices learned at this workshop. There is a $25 registration fee which must be received by March 15. Seating is limited, so no walk-ins will be accepted. Fee covers cost of morning refreshments, lunch, and education materials. To register, please call the Luzerne County Extension Office at 570-825-1701.
