Conservation in your own backyard

Protecting the natural resources on agricultural acres to the urban landscape is vital to health of plants, wildlife, and people. Farmers and ranchers have been using conservation practices successfully for decades to improve and protect resources. Such practices are adapted to be used by homeowners in their own backyard or within the community.

Most backyard conservation practices are easy into practice. Instructions and information for installing rain barrels, mulching plants, composting yard waste, nutrient management, etc., is readily available through local garden, garden clubs, or the Wood Soil and Water Conservation district.

Look for workshops, outreach programs, and clinics throughout the year to help you get started or to maintain and improve the good things you already have established.
