Woodville Adventurer’s celebrate 20 years

        Woodville Adventurer’s 4-H Club celebrated 20 years at a banquet held Oct. 29. The club started in 1997 with 11 members, advisor Louise Linke said. Today, it boasts 15 members, ages 5-16.  Club members participate in activities to raise funds to benefit local charities and families and take part in community service projects.

        “I’m proud of all the kids that we’ve had over the past 20 years,” Linke said. “They’ve all done really well.”

EQIP deadline Nov. 17

        The U.S. Department of Agriculture has set Nov. 17 as the deadline to submit applications for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) in Ohio.

        EQIP is a voluntary conservation program to help growers protect the environment with financial assistance for cropland, forestry, pasture operations, high tunnels, organic and other categories.

        The program is administered through the department’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

        Applications submitted to the NRCS by the Nov. 17 deadline will be evaluated for Fiscal 2018 funding.

        For information, growers should contact their local USDA Service Center.

Public invited to tour ag sites

        Elected officials and interested members of the public are invited to join a bus tour to see sites affecting water quality and learn how they operate Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

        The tour will offer insight into how different sources of nutrients are entering the western Lake Erie basin, how science is collecting information on the causes of harmful algal blooms and how to make informed decisions to improve the health of the lake.

        Tour stops will include Naomi Dairy Farm in Wood County, a Heidelberg Water Testing Station in Fremont, a bio-solids holding facility in Graytown, and Green Field Ag, an agricultural equipment company in Gibsonburg.
