Sustainable Landscapes - July 8
The Nebraska SARE Program will again be sponsoring a series of webinars in the coming months that address issues of sustainability and sustainable agriculture. Please join us on Wednesday, July 8th at 10:00 a.m. as John Fech, Extension Educator in Douglas/Sarpy County will discuss Sustainable Landscapes. John and a group of other Extension Educators took an Extension and SARE funded study tour to Colorado and learned a lot about Sustainable Landscapes at different places in Colorado. Information learned on this trip will be part of John's webinar. While much of the tour focused on landscapes that required less water, that isn't the situation in much of Nebraska this spring. As we head into the summer months, the environment in Nebraska can change and become very harsh, and hot and dry. We hope you can join us for this webinar. It will be recorded if you are unable to participate.On July 8 at 10:00 am join the Sustainable Landscapes webinar by going to: https://connect.unl.edu/r3b3oehb849/ .
