Property owners with livestock and septic systems can learn sound stewardship techniques at two upcoming education opportunities that are sponsored by the King Conservation District.
Two workshops offered in July sponsored by the King Conservation District and King County’s Stormwater Services will help property owners handle waste, water and other common challenges. Local experts will give their tips on taking care of small properties with big animals and septic system care. Taking care of these challenges can save repair costs and protect human and animal health.
The farm tour at Laughing Horse Farm in Issaquah, is Thursday, July 16, and kicks off with an art show at 5:30 p.m. featuring horse portraits by oil painter Evan Jones 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.,. The tour will cover mud and water management systems, composting and landscaping.
The class, “Caring for your rural septic system and wellhead,” is scheduled for Saturday, July 18 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Brightwater Center, 22505 SR 9 S.E., Woodinville. Local septic system professionals will discuss how to maintain your septic system, protect your wellhead and drinking water, and keep pollutants out of waterways.
