Are you a horse farm owner or manager who wants to do right by your horses and the environment? Or maybe you have plans to start a new farm and want to do things right the first time? Penn State Extension has partnered with the Allegheny County Conservation District to help farm owners with these challenges. Equine Environmental Stewardship Short Coursewill use both classroom and hands-on teaching with an activity accompanying each topic to prepare participants to manage their pastures and grazing, soil fertility, weeds, and manure in an environmentally friendly manner.

Thanks to a grant from PA Association of Conservation Districts, the registration fee is greatly reduced!

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
