Class Series Teaches Land Stewardship 

Clark County, WA – Over the past 19 years, over 500 Clark County residents have graduated from the Living on the Land class series. The program brings in local experts to teach key stewardship principles to small acreage land caretakers.  These experts give advice on pasture and livestock management, managing weeds, caring for your forest, improving wildlife habitat, soil health, stormwater management, well & septic maintenance, and more.

The first step to good land management is understanding the whole system.  WSU Clark County class series begins with advice on how to take appropriate inventories and create maps that help with goal planning.  The class then dives into pasture and teaches about rotational grazing. Soil speakers share advice on soil testing and improving your soil health and fertility.  The watershed class teach about dealing with stormwater and protecting nearby water bodies. Terry Koper, Small Acreage Program Coordinator, states, “The variety of information these classes cover can help small acreage land caretakers dealing with a variety of land management issues.  Not only do we teach stewardship practices, but also how to effectively manage your problem areas such as muddy pastures and weeds”.

The program is hosted by WSU Clark County Extension and supported by Clark County Public Works Clean Water Program.  Class-series is on Tuesday evenings from September 27 through December 6, 2022.  Classes will be primarily online this year via Zoom with some in-person tours and classes. Advance registration is required.  The cost is $35 per person or $50 per household.  To register and find more information on Living on the Land visit the WSU Extension’s website at  http://go.wsu.edu/smallacreage or contact Terry at Terry.Koper@wsu.edu and 564-397-5729.
