Land Stewardship Workshop for Small Acreages
Here in Montana, taking care of your land can be a big job. Controlling weeds is a constant battle, understanding the stream permitting system can be overwhelming, and managing your resources for long term health takes time and care. We hope we can make some of these challenges a little easier and help people understand the resources and possibilities around them.
The Land Stewardship Workshop for Small Acreages is an annual event hosted by Madison CD, Ruby Valley CD, MSU Extension, and MT Natural Resources Conservation Service, to bring together key agencies and land use professionals to speak on topics relevant to small acreage landowners in Madison County. It will also provide an introduction to agencies/professionals who can act as a resource in the future. The workshop’s presentation topics are based on frequently asked questions and will aim to give folks a better understanding of Best Management Practices, as well as, the permitting and laws associated with land management.
In 2023, the workshop will take place on October 3rd at Alder Fire Hall from 3pm-5pm. The topics covered will be:
- Managing Invasive Weeds on Your Property – Amber Burch, Beaverhead Weed District Administrator
- Pasture/Grazing Management on Small Acreages – Noah Davis, MSU Red Bluff Research Ranch Foreman
- Protecting Your Property from Wildfire – Darrell Schulte, Madison County Forester
- Q&A Panel – agency representatives and workshop presenters
