Healthy Yards for Clear Streams to Begin February 23

Hank Stelzer, MU Extension

Healthy lawns make for healthy streams. University of Missouri Extension will once again offer the online course Healthy Yards for Clear Streams beginning February 23. The eight-week course will take homeowners through a series of best practices to reduce chemical usage around the yard and slow the flow of stormwater runoff.

Participants will participate a live Zoom on February 23 to ensure everyone can get into the online course and feel comfortable navigating once inside. After the first meeting, participants will view recorded sessions the week leading up to a live Q&A session with the featured presenter. Participants will earn the Yard of Merit Award by completing seven easy assignments, one for each module.

The cost of the program is $40. Registration will be open soon on the MU Extension website. Simply type the words 'Healthy Yards' in the search window.

Healthy Yards for Clear Streams offers homeowners information to share with their neighbors to improve practices for beautiful lawns and healthier waterways. You can make a difference!
