Sixteen Nelson and Albemarle County landowners attended The Woods in Your Backyard workshop at the Quarry Gardens on Wednesday, May 3, where they learned ways to plan for and manage their woodlots. Adam Downing, regional Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Agent, led a team of instructors from Agriculture and Natural Resources, Forestry, and Wildlife Resources. Most attendees stayed for lunch in the picnic pavilion and a tour of the QGs led by Armand Thieblot. All went home with two award-winning workbooks.
The Woods in Your Backyard will be offered again on June 24 at the Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Raphine. For information or to register: https://tinyurl.com/vawoods.
