CREP Workshop

The Jefferson Conservation District held a CREP Workshop on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.  This Meeting, coordinated by Megan Whitlatch, ACT/Nutrient Management Specialist, was held at the Jefferson Conservation Center from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. 

The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) pays farmers and other landowners to conserve and enhance their land.  In this workshop, participants learned about the benefits of CREP, riparian forest buffers, how to identify and control the spread of noxious & invasive weeds on your land, and safe herbicide use.  Speakers included Mike Kerr of the Farm Service Agency, Nicole Carutis of the Penn State Extension, Megan Whitlatch of the Jefferson Conservation District, and John Brundege of the DCNR Bureau of Forestry.

Financial and other support for the CREP Outreach Program Office Mini-grant Program was provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a Growing Greener Watershed Protection grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and with additional support from USDA-NRCS.

Megan Whitlatch showed participants how to identify noxious and invasive plants.
