The Tomales Bay Watershed Council is partnering with the Marin Horse Council to host a 1-day Horse Keeper's Workshop in Nicasio on Wednesday, April 26. The workshop will convene a panel of experts who will help guide horse facility owners to a better understanding of the regulations, what they require, tools to help you comply, and methods to protect the health of your horses and the environment. The full day workshop will include panel presentations, box lunch, and a tour of a local equestrian facility to see best management practices in action and a demonstration of field water quality monitoring.
