ALUS Norfolk is planning its annual Environmental Stewardship Tour for Wednesday, August 23, 2017.
The tour will commence from Courtland, then visit four properties. Lunch is included with a suggested $10 donation.
Examples of what you will see include:
- Tallgrass prairie buffer established around a deep valley to prevent erosion and runoff from the adjacent agricultural field, while also providing sediment and nutrient filtration, wildlife habitat, and shading to lower water temperatures.
- Trees planted on a marginal sandy field to stabilize soils, converting an area of land which offered poor agricultural production into a healthy forest habitat.
Only 120 guests can participate so register early. RSVP by August 16 to [email protected].
