Forestry Seminar - September 25th 9am - 12pm

Join us for a half day forestry workshop. We will be hosting this workshop in Floyd county at the working woods of Ronald Wathen, a Floyd County SWCD supervisor.

The day will include guest speakers from a variety of forestry disciplines. Forestry professionals will be speaking on topics such as identifying invasive species, NRCS EQIP programs available to land owners, proper application of pesticides, and a consulting forester will be on hand to discuss invasive plant management.

The day will also include a walking tour. A light breakfast will be served as well as lunch.

SWCD Offers Funds for Invasive Plant Control

The Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District announces funds are now available to landowners through the Clean Water Indiana grants.

Floyd County is offering funds for a new program to assist in the evaluation and eradication of invasive plants on your acreage. The SWCD is offering to pay a portion of the assistance provided by a consultant forester to help homeowners and landusers to identify invasive species on their property. This grant will also offer a trade-in payment for eradication and replacement of invasive plants in your yard. These invasive plants include the Callery/Bradford Pear Tree, Japanese Barberry, and Burning Bush.

For more information and cost-share rates and reimbursements, please contact Angel Jackson at the Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District office at 812-945-9936.
