Would you like expert tips to help you care for your yard and garden? Then Spring Fever Garden Forums are for you! North Dakota State University is offering a series of forums this spring.

Live presentations from NDSU will be delivered to Extension offices across the state. Educators will be there to share educational materials and expertise. Free samples of bulbs and seeds will be provided to participants at these sites. The sessions are free.

Gardeners may participate online in their homes if they would prefer.

There will be three brief presentations each night. The forums will run on Monday nights: March 25, April 1, April 8 and April 15. All forums run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. MT, and the Dickinson site is set for NDSU Extension/Stark-Billings County at 1340 West Villard St. Registration is requested. Please call 456-7665 or register at the Spring Fever website
