EMSWCD offers free workshops for urban and rural residents on topics ranging from naturescaping and rain gardens to attracting pollinators, and livestock management. Our classes help people care for land in ways that benefit people, water, and wildlife. Watch as our Urban Lands program supervisor, Kathy Shearin, talks about how we’ve adapted this year by transitioning to online workshops and by offering a new community “virtual yard tour,” in this interview with MetroEast Community Media!
