The Carroll County Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with area groups to offer several workshops this June.
The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District will continue its cover crop cost share program for 2017. Fields that are located within the Muskingum Watershed in Carroll County can receive approximately $12 per acre cost share regardless of seeding method or termination method. Participants must attend one of the scheduled sign-up days to fill out applications so that fields may be ranked to determine funding.
Allow at least two hours to attend an informational meeting about the program requirements and to complete applications. Be sure to bring field maps or location information to sign up. The sign-up days will be held at the Carroll SWCD office at 613 N. High St. in Carrollton at 9 a.m. on May 26, June 2 and June 9. No RSVP is necessary for above dates. If you are unable to sign up on one of these days, contact the Carroll SWCD office at 330-627-9852. All applications must be in by June 16.

This free workshop is focused on helping hunters of all kinds create a habitat that will bring the deer right where they want them.
