(MONTGOMERY) – A family event to learn about managing natural resources will be held Thursday, Aug. 22 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Glendale Fish & Wildlife Area.
The event is hosted by the new Daviess-Martin CISMA, a local partnership working to educate the public about invasive species.
Families are welcome to drop by anytime to learn about natural resources, the invasive plants that threaten them, and what tools are used in resource management.
Landowners will also have a chance to talk with local resource professionals and learn about technical and cost-share assistance available.
The event will feature several stations located around the office and maintenance area, so choose whatever interests you. Stations will include tree & invasive plant ID, nature crafts, managing grasslands for wildlife, management tools big and small, and using herbicide to manage invasive plants.
Kids can create drink coasters featuring pressed leaves, while adults view equipment used to create wildlife habitat.
Visit the PlayCleanGo station to learn how to stop invasive species in your tracks and pick up a free bootbrush (while supplies last).
This event is supported by the Daviess-Dubois-Martin Invasive Plant Partnership, a Clean Water Indiana Grant project.
