Loudoun County Parks, Recreation & Community Services is taking registrations for its October workshop helping landowners enrich the value of their property.

Cosponsored by the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, the Small Landowner Workshop is geared for owners of 50 acres of land or less. The course is being held October 2 at Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration is through course #167590 at https://webtrac.loudoun.gov/, and runs through September 25.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about your land’s potential from a series of experts, whether you own four acres or forty,” said Ron Circé, manager at Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve.

The cost of the workshop is $60 per person, or $100 per two registrants at the same address, and is limited to 30 participants. The fee includes a continental breakfast and box lunch, a map of the participant’s property based on current GIS data, and a comprehensive reference notebook.

Following registration, each participant will be contacted to choose six out of eight classes to attend during the workshop. Classes include: Conservation Easements; Mapping and GIS of Your Property; Wildlife Issues; Your Woods, Your Timber and How to Manage Them; Introduction to Honeybees; Meadows and Pollinators; Invasive Plants and Habitat Certifications. Instructors will include specialists from the Virginia Department of Agriculture, the Audubon Ambassadors program and other local and state agencies.

For more information, contact Ron Circé, manager, Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve, at ron.circe@loudoun.gov.
