As spring carries on (and with summer right around the corner!) some Dutchess County residents are getting outside and staying busy with landscaping and home improvement projects. Are you a new homeowner with aspirations of improving your backyard habitat for songbirds or managing a pond, or do you have a larger property or woodlot that is overrun with invasive plants, but you’d like to learn how to better manage for native and more desirable trees and shrubs?

If so, join us for our upcoming webinar series, “Learn Your Land!” This series, which will consist of three 2-hour sessions, is aimed at educating attendees on best practices and strategies for management of their communities’ natural areas/resources and promoting general environmental stewardship. Attendees will walk through a process of inventorying the natural resources on their property or in their community, learning potential management and conservation strategies, and developing plans to implement these best management practices.

Join us on Zoom on Tuesday June 2nd, Tuesday June 9th, and Tuesday June 16th from 6:00-8:00 PM as we delve into presentations, tools, and resources pertaining to ecological principles & stewardship, identifying, inventorying & mapping your property, and finally specific land management techniques you can implement.

  • Sean Carroll - CCEDC Environment & Energy Program
  • Michelle Gluck - CCEDC Environment & Energy Program
  • Julie Hart - Dutchess Land Conservancy
  • Nate Nardi-Cyrus - NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program
