Extension La Crosse County is bringing Alayne Blickle from Horses for Clean Water to educate local horse owners on the best techniques in the horse keeping industry! Horses for Clean Water is a program developed by horse owners for horse owners. Their mission is to help other horse owners manage their land in the best way possible for horse health and the environment. Alayne will be giving her Simple Solutions presentation.

In this presentation, Alayne will cover wonderful ways to put native plants to work on your farm including rain gardens, dust barriers, trail

courses, visual screens, pollinator hedgerows, summer shade, and lowcost/low-care native landscaping. She will also discuss easy and fun ways beneficial wildlife can work for us such as by providing natural pest control. Additionally, Alayne will cover eco-friendly ways to manage odors, useful water conservation tips, how to build an outdoor washrack, as well as tips for manure and pasture management. Reduce chemical use on your property while making it healthier for your horses, you, and wildlife!
