The San Mateo County Resource Conservation District is hosting three free workshops through its Livestock and Land program. The series is meant to provide Coastside equestrian and livestock owners with information about land stewardship.

The workshops will focus on managing pasture and paddocks, reducing erosion, mud and dust, managing manure, site planning, and best management practices. In addition to presentations by area experts, attendees will learn about free local resources and how to apply for property improvement funding.

By decreasing erosion and reducing manure runoff to local streams, property owners will experience decreased maintenance costs and a safer environment, according to a release issued by RCD.

The Livestock and Lands Program provides technical assistance and cost sharing for operators of livestock and equestrian facilities to develop practices that protect water quality.

The workshops are from 2 to 6:30 p.m. on Monday in Princeton and at the same time on Tuesday in Pescadero. A follow-up workshop and facility tour will focus on site planning from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 in Pacifica.

All workshops are free but reservations are required. Contact Karissa Anderson at for details.
