In order to address problems with invasive species and loss of water quality due to pollution, this project would provide targeted small landowners in Woodford County an educational opportunity via a workshop on woodland and riparian establishment, restoration, and management. Topics covered in the workshop would include tree identification, tree planting and thinning techniques, prescribed burning, eradication of exotic species, and other practices that enhance woodland and riparian areas for wildlife habitat. The workshop would include speakers and displays from IDNR, NRCS, and other professional organizations or businesses, and also provide for a tour of properties where management strategies have been utilized.
