Protect your investment and keep your animals safe.

Register now to attend a Breeze Workshop concerning poisonous plants and new developments in rangeland grasses.

The class will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, at the Archuleta County Extension Office in Pagosa Springs.

The workshop fee is $10 per person and includes workshop materials and lunch if registration is received (not postmarked) by Jan. 28. If registration is received after this date, there will be a $5 fee added.

The USDA ARS Poisonous Plant Lab and Forage and Range Research Laboratory are the premier research facilities in the West, and will be the highlight of the workshop. Scientists and practitioners from both labs will present the latest research on Larkspur, Locoweed and other poisonous plants.

The research team from the forage lab will provide information on integrating range plants into Cheatgrass sites, Forage Kochia and new developments in rangeland grasses.
