The days will also feature an update on pasture dieback, and identifying and using bio-control for weed management on your property.

Landowners will learn about the application of flupropanate granules for GRT control, methods and equipment.

The secret lives of native bees will also be revealed.

There will be displays along with lucky door prizes and more.
