Cheyenne sessions highlight increased property value, natural resource protection

Tips and techniques small-acreage landowners can use to improve property values and protect natural resources are featured at a Cheyenne workshop in April.

“Habitat Restoration on Small Acreage” is 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, on the Laramie County Community College campus, said Kristina Hufford, University of Wyoming Extension specialist in restoration ecology.

Topics include soil management, value of native plants, adapting large-scale seeding practices for small acreages, managing livestock to preserve land value, weed management, and conservation tools for private land and areas of concern, such as riparian and wetland sites.

The workshop is a collaboration between UW Extension and the Wyoming Reclamation and Restoration Center in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

“The workshop will provide tools for regional landowners who want to enjoy the outdoors and protect natural resources on their properties,” said Hufford, an associate professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management in the college.
