Living on the land class open

Registration for WSU Clark County Extension’s Small Acreage Program’s twelve week class series, “Living On the Land – Stewardship for Small Acreages,” is now open. It is sponsored by WSU Clark County Extension and Public Works Clean Water Program, and prepares participants with the knowledge necessary to develop a sustainable property management plan.

Participants learn about important topics pertaining to soil, water, and plant and animal management that guide sound stewardship decisions for small acreages.

Topics are presented by local and regional experts and include pasture management, controlling weeds, wildlife, soil health, well and septic maintenance, and others. Graduates learn practices that enhance natural resources and helpful strategies for improving their property by taking a whole farm approach, according to a press release from the organization.

“The real value of Living On the Land is hearing from regional specialists and making connections with local landowners.” said Amber Lefstead, program coordinator.

Doug Stienbarger, Director of WSU Clark County Extension, adds “Living On the Land teaches management practices that help landowners save time and money, improve property value, and protect natural resources.”

Classes run from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays, August 30 to Nov. 15. Registration is $50 per family (including up to two attendees). The registration deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 29. Contact or visit for registration details.
