      Take the plunge to protect and enhance your property, water quality, as well
      as fish and wildlife habitat. Attend this workshop to:

      * Design a native plant planting plan to protect and enhance your
      stream, wetlands or other waterbody.
      * Calculate the length and cost of a livestock exclusion fence to keep
      animals out of wetlands or creeks.
      * Select native plants suited to stream and wetland buffers.
      * Get resource lists for sources of native plants.
      * Determine plant placement.
      * Outline a maintenance plan.
      * Learn about regulations in effect
      * Find out about coast-sharing programs available.
      * Meet free resource technicians available to assist you.



      The King & Snohomish Conservation Districts are offering four FREE hands-on
      workshops on livestock management practices. Learn techniques to help turn
      your farm into a more useable place for you, your animals and the
      environment. Less mud, better pastures & good ways to manage manure!



      Attend all four workshops, or only those that meet your needs.
