Breakfast series for local landowners

This fall and winter, the Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District will be hosting a series of breakfast meetings for landowners in Amelia, Nottoway and Prince Edward counties. The goal of the series is to help people better understand the various responsibilities and opportunities that come with being a landowner. Topics to be covered include winter livestock feeding and forage management (Oct. 9), conservation opportunities for your land (Nov. 13), landowner risk management and liabilities (Jan. 8), and what to know when planning to build a pond (Feb. 12). The meetings will be held from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. at the Crewe Volunteer Fire Department, located at 1105 West Virginia Ave., Crewe. Breakfast will be provided free of charge.

The series is hosted by the Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District in partnership with Virginia Cooperative Extension and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The District will also partner with other natural resource experts and agencies in presenting these topics. Register by the Friday before each meeting by calling Charlie Wootton at (434) 392-3782 ext. 128.
