Two workshops are coming to Corbett this spring! Learn how to attract pollinators to your property and how to keep the weeds out.

On March 29th, join us for an evening with Celeste Mazzacano as she introduces us to the flies, beetles, moths, and butterflies that keep our farms and gardens vibrant and productive. Get tips on how to identify some of our most helpful local pollinators and discover which plants will attract them to your land.

On April 12th, join EMSWCD’s own Weeds Specialist Jon Wagner as he gives us a lesson in local invaders. He’ll show us how to recognize some of the area’s most aggressive weeds and tell us how to keep them off our land and out of our forests.
