- Herpetology - Herpe What! Snakes Native to Our Area
- 10:00 AM | Fayetteville, GA
- Do you know the difference between a venomous and non-venomous snake? This Herpetology class is designed to get us all on the same page regarding the differences and similarities. There will be various non-venomous, non-poisonous snakes native to Georgia at the class. Join Jessica Simoneaux, Fortson 4-H Center Program Specialist, who is very familiar and comfortable with these snakes. Don't worry, they will not be crawling around under your seats. The difference between venomous and non-venomous snakes will be the focal talking point, as well as being able to identify them and peacefully coexist with them. We will also talk about their habitats, food sources, and how snakes have a positive impact on our environment! Please RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free class.
- Apr 11
- Warm Season Lawn - Establishment & Maintenance (Part 1)
- 9:30 AM | Fayetteville, GA
- For many years the industry has recognized April as National Lawn Care Month. The start of the spring season is the perfect time to harness excitement about the outdoors and remind residents about the benefits of a well-cared for lawn. Spring is the time of year when the sun is warm, the breeze is cool, and the hum of lawnmowers fills the air. American homeowners take a great deal of pride in their yards, spending about $6.4 billion a year on lawn care, according to the Professional Lawn Care Association of America; buying, seed, fertilizer, herbicide, lawnmowers, string trimmers, and other equipment in an effort to create the ideal lawn: a lush green grass that feels cool between the toes. We also know there are weeds and pests that can cause havoc and ruin the beauty of our lawns. Please join Dan Larrick, Master Gardener Extension Volunteer, as he expounds on establishment and maintenance of our warm season lawns (Part 1). RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free classes.
