The ag watershed nutrient loss reduction strategy has been on the minds of many in the ag community around Central Illinois, and one local college is now offering classes on how to better manage local watersheds. Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield is offering a series of classes free of charge for those interested in learning more on the subject.
David Bowman is the Program Coordinator of Workforce Development at LLCC, and says the courses will be available this fall on a first come first serve basis.
One of the added values of the classes is that not only are they free of charge, but the credit a student taking the classes receives is transferable to a number of local universities.
Bowman appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
