Learn how to obtain a Wildlife Special valuation on your land and to attract desirable wildlife to your land.

About this event

If you have land under an agriculture exemption, you may qualify for a Wildlife Special Valuation, a tax status that provides the same tax rate as agricultural exemptions while allowing the landowner to focus on improving habitat for wildlife, as opposed to traditional farming.

This seminar will show you how to do both. The morning session will be about the qualifications for Wildlife Special Valuations, how to apply for one, and guidelines for managing your land for wildlife. The afternoon session will include speakers on wildlife management planning, habitat improvement, and removal of undesirable and invasive plants.

In between, enjoy touring the Butterfly Garden at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, where the program will be held. Please bring a sack lunch, as there are limited eating establishments nearby.
