Small Acreage Expo 2018
The 13th Annual Small Acreage Expo is a fun, valuable, and informative event that offers participants a choice of different classes (see choices below) on topics small acreage residents want to know about. Learn about important topics that will help you manage your land, get to know local resources, meet other small acreage landowners and have a great time at the 78th Street Heritage Farm!
An open house during the lunch hour will allow participants to meet and learn more about local agencies that serve the public as well as ask questions to local vendors participating in the event.
Pre-registration is $15 and runs until noon on Friday, April 13. Late registration price is $25 and can be paid on arrival.
The Small Acreage Expo is sponsored by the WSU Clark County Extension. For more information and to see an event program, visit http://extension.wsu.edu/clark/naturalresources/smallacreageprogram/#Expo
