Bluestem Master Naturalists to Offer Landowner Program

Sept 17, 2022, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center

One of the Bluestem Chapter’s current initiatives is to educate landowners about ways in which they can preserve open space, increase habitat for wildlife, and get a property tax break at the same time. That option is a Wildlife Special Valuation.

If you have land under an agriculture exemption, you may qualify for a Wildlife Special Valuation, a tax status that provides the same tax rate as agricultural exemptions while allowing the landowner to focus on improving habitat for wildlife, as opposed to traditional farming.

This seminar will show you how to do both.

·       The morning session will cover the qualifications for Wildlife Special Valuations, how to apply for one, and guidelines for managing your land for wildlife.

·       The afternoon session will include speakers on wildlife management practices such as habitat improvement, providing supplemental food and water, and removal of undesirable and invasive plants.

In between, enjoy touring the Butterfly Garden at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, where the program will be held. Please bring a sack lunch, as there are limited eating establishments nearby.
