Learn about managing natural resources

A family event to learn about managing natural resources will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, at Glendale Fish & Wildlife.

The event is hosted by the new Daviess-Martin CISMA, a local partnership working to educate the public about invasive species. Drop by anytime between 6 and 8 p.m. to learn about natural resources, the invasive plants that threaten them, and what tools are used in resource management. In particular, landowners also will 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. Stations will include tree and invasive plant identification, 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 tracks and pick up a free boot brush (while supplies last). 

This event is supported by the Daviess-Dubois-Martin Invasive Plant Partnership, a Clean Water Indiana Grant project.
