Conservation News

Cover crops and 'no-till' called future of farming by soil expertSoil health specialist James Hoorman demonstrates how cover crops and "no-till" methods can improve the soil structure for farms at an Ottawa SWD workshop on Thursday. (Jon Stinchcomb/News Herald) GIBSONBURG - Dozens of local farmers got a crash course in the topic of soil health on Thursday.|

Experts say maintaining it can both increase their yields and help reduce nutrient pollution that leads to harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie.The Ottawa, Wood and Sandusky county soil and water conservation districts, along with the USDA Department of Agriculture, organized a soil health workshop at Ole Zim’s Wagon Shed.
James Hoorman, a regional soil health specialist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, said the keys to improving and maintaining healthy soil involved two main areas — use of cover crops and no-till farming.

Some of the Great Folks who help Sponsors the Tiffin-Seneca County IWLA:

Regarding Memberships: 


    • Important SAFETY Measures!...
      • It is important that when using the lower range; that you post your targets on the stands in front of the back stops!!!
      • If you set targets up close to the shooting benches your bullets will ricochet off the flat ground; going who knows where!  “SAFETY IS A MUST”
    • Please!!! NO shooting of bottleneck rounds (including .223 rounds) on the UPPER Range!!
    • Please remember to PICK UP ALL of your Rounds and casings..  NO rifle-bottle neck round on the pistol range!  Leave the area cleaner that the way you found it!
    • Please:  NO "midnight shooting"  The ranges are open from sunup to sunset.  No shooting using car headlights etc.  (Late night Fishing is OK for members).

    • All RANGEs are for MEMBERS and immediate family members ONLY.  The lower Range is open as long as there is NO activity on the farm field.  Please use caution;  Remember, NO glass, Cinder blocks, shooting at picnic tables, or Trash... pick up ALL trash (not just yours) before you leave.  It is everyone's duty to keep it clean.
    • Pond: The pond is catch and release only. We pay to have this pond stocked! THANKS!

    • Range SAFETY:  Common sense and Safety!  No Glass, concrete block, cylinder blocks, etc.  If you see trash on the range, clean it up.
      (MEMBERS and immediate family members ONLY!)
    •  Gun Safety must be practiced on the range:
      •  A gun is always treated as if it were loaded. 
      •  The gun is always pointed down range. 
      •  Finger off the trigger until clearance to shoot.
      •  Keep the action OPEN when pausing or going down range to set up targets.
      •  No Horseplay!
    • CHL / CCW Classes offered by Dean Henry, and John Weslow, on a regular basis.                   
        • John Weslow see for CCW class details.
