The Woods in Your Backyard - University Park
June 22, 2013The Woods in Your Backyard teaches stewardship of small parcels of land. By enhancing or creating natural areas and woodland on your lot, you can enjoy recreation, aesthetics, wildlife, and water quality. If your lot connects to other lots, there’s ample opportunity to make an even bigger impact by getting neighbors involved! Owners of even just a few acres can make a positive difference in the environment through planning and implementing simple stewardship practices.
