Jackson County residents have opportunity to participate in a field-based education program about natural resource management.
The Oregon State University Extension Service and the Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District are pleased to offer the 2011 Land Steward program.

The course is targeting land owners who want to learn how to balance sustainability with their rural lifestyles.
The course takes place on Tuesday afternoons, 1:00-5:30 p.m., It begins Sept. 6 and ends Nov. 8.
