  • HONESDALE - Are you interested in enhancing your wildlife habitat? The Wayne Conservation District has announced the first program in a series of workshops focusing on wildlife habitat enhancement, beginning Saturday, May 31.
       Wildlife food plots can provide opportunities to view wildlife or develop a healthier wildlife population if done properly. The first workshop will focus on the proper operation of the no-till rental equipment provided by the Wayne Conservation District. This free program will be held on May 31 at the Wayne County Farm from 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.. A free lunch will be provided.
       A wide variety of seeds will be planted using both the new 4’ no-till Kasko and the larger 7’ no-till Haybuster to demonstrate the versatility of the available machines. Additional vendors and experts will be on hand for questions and more information during the plantings. A follow-up workshop is planned for later this year to discuss the success of the spring plantings and address the importance of cover for wildlife.
       The Wayne County Farm is located on Bethel School Road, Berlin Township at the intersection of Buckingham Road. From PA Route 652, turn onto Bethel School Road at Marshal Machinery.
        For more information please contact Heidi Ferber or Sarah Hall of the Wayne Conservation District at 570-253-0930.
