Penn State Renewable Natural Resources Webinar Series

The Extension Educators at Penn State hold a number of interesting and valuable webinars each month.  These webinars are free to participate in.  Each webinar is provided "live" and recoded and posted to a web site for later viewing as well.  Below is the list of upcoming programs.  Be sure to tune in if you see something you may find of value. 

PA Forest Stewardship Webinar: Attracting Wildlife with “Weeds,” Tuesday, March 11, 12 – 1 p.m. EST and 7 – 8 p.m. EST
Many landowners are interested in creating habitat in their backyards to attract wildlife.  However, many of our ecologically important native plants are perceived as weeds when in actuality they are beneficial to wildlife. In this webinar we will discuss the need to create wildlife habitat in your backyard and will draw the distinction between native and non-native weeds. Presented by Katie Ombalski, Conservation Biologist, ClearWater Conservancy.
