More Sandpit Management Workshops

I blogged about a sandpit management workshop last week.  I intended that would be the only blog post about that, but within a half day after posting, I discovered there were more workshops scheduled.  So, I need to get the word out about those too:

Sandpit lake management workshops scheduled in Weeping Water and Columbus

LINCOLN, Neb. – Persons interested in sandpit lake management are invited to a series of free workshops this spring.

The workshops are a joint effort of the Nebraska Extension, Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The workshops are intended for landowners and others interested in learning about:

Sandpits can be excellent fisheries and are very important fisheries resources in Nebraska!
