Land conservation workshop set for Sept. 24 in Millsboro


People who own land in Sussex County and may be interested in conserving their land can learn about voluntary land conservation options and the financial benefits of conserving their land and about organizations and programs that can help protect, conserve and restore their lands at a land conservation workshop planned for Sept. 24 in Millsboro.

“Delawareans are increasingly expressing interest in learning how they can increase the financial benefits associated with their land while preserving their lifestyle and the natural value of their land, now and for generations to come,” organizers said.

The land conservation workshop will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Cordrey Center at East Coast Garden Center, 30366 Cordrey Road in Millsboro. The workshop is free, and no registration is required. Refreshments will be served, and there will be handouts for attendees.

The workshop is being sponsored by Delaware Wild Lands, the Delaware Nature Society and the Delaware Center for Inland Bays. Other conservation organizations will also be in attendance to talk to attendees about their programs and answer questions.
