Riveredge is excited to announce our new “Do It Yourself” Academy, part of the RNC Wildscape Network.  Launched in 2012, the RNC Wildscape Network has traditionally offered land management consultations and other ecological services to individuals as a way to educate property owners about their land, on their land. These traditional services provide solutions to specific questions or management objectives for individual property owners; they do not provide a class atmosphere or activities that foster inquiry based learning and creativity for creating your own prairie, woodland, etc.  So, we wanted to expand our services.

If you’ve attended workshops, been overwhelmed with the catalogs and you just don’t understand what you are doing wrong or where to being, this is the program for you!  The “Do It Yourself” Academy allows participants to enroll in a series of classes that will cover topics such as developing, implementing and maintaining specific habitat types on your property.
