Listen in on this new podcast about snototters, one of the largest amphibians on the planet.
Purdue Extension is starting a program that will provide training and resources on "rainscaping" practices used in residential gardens or small-scale public spaces to reduce pollution from runoff.
Bald Eagle
While most of us think of spring as the bird breeding season, several species get a jump start during the winter. Bald Eagles build nests in large trees or snags near sources of food - rivers, streams and lakes during the winter season. Wildlife Extension Specialist, Brian MacGowan, shares a frequent question asked regarding what kind of activities can and can not take place around Bald Eagles.
Planting seedlings.
Trees are planted for various reasons including, timber production, wildlife habitat, riparian buffers, native woodland restoration, windbreaks, watershed protection, erosion control, and conservation. If you are contemplating planting trees or shrubs for conservation purposes this spring, it is not too late to order seedlings from Indiana nurseries.
