Spring Fever

North Dakota State University is offering a series of forums to help you care for your yard and garden. A team of experts will share the latest information on timely topics in horticulture, including new trees, organic gardening, and invading pests.

Live presentations from NDSU will be delivered to county Extension offices across the state. Forums will be held over four consecutive Monday nights, from March 19 to April 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. CDT.

Local County Extension Agents will also add comments and provide localized information relating to each topic.

The sessions are free and everyone is invited to attend, however, registration is requested for preparation purposes since space is limited at some host sites. Free educational materials and samples of bulbs and seeds will be provided to Extension office attendees.

The Pierce County Extension office will host the Spring Fever Garden Forums at the Pierce County Courthouse community room located in Rugby at 240 2nd St. SE. The Pierce County location has 15-20 spots available and will not be offered if there are less than 10 participants registered.

If you cannot make it to Rugby, you can register to watch the broadcasts on your home computer. Registration may be done by calling the Pierce County Extension office at 701-776-6234 ext. 5 or online at www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever/ (if it fits your schedule you may attend some sessions in Rugby and watch others at home).

A complete list of topics by date can also be found at www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever/.
