There is a lot of room at the Graceville Gun Club, and more shooters are always welcome. Raffle winners at the Graceviile i00NDENT Funds available to plant living snow fences in LqP Co. In February 1998 the Lac qui Parle Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) conducted a survey concern- ing living snow fences. The county highway department snowplow dri- vers were consulted, which is how they derived the list of landowners for the survey in 1998. Lac qui Parle County has over forty problem areas on just the county roads. Many of these snowdrifts occur in the same place year after year, cre- ating huge costs (and higher taxes) for snow removal and lost productivity. A living snow fence is a designed planting of trees and shrubs located along roads or ditches, communities and farmsteads. Strategically placed, the living snow fence or barrier will trap snow as it blows across fields, piling it up before it ever reaches a road, farmstead, or community. Some other benefits of living snow fences include greater road visibility, better functioning drainage systems, improved wildlife habitat, livestock protection, reduced soil erosion, visu- al screens and energy conservation. Living snow fences save money and are very cost effective. A 10-foot tall living snow fence can trap at least 20- 30 tons of snow per linear foot of liv- ing fence, saving $3/ton for plowing and removal (or $79,000 to $119,000 for a 1/4 mile of living fence). Living snow fences need to be incorporated and used in controlling the blowing snow in the northern United States. Lac qui Parle County and the Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) have received a grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the establishment of living snow fences in Lac qui Parle County. This is a new program that will compensate you for the land, estab- lishment, and maintenance of the liv- ing snow fence. The SWCD will be designing plans for each individual site. The Lac qui Parle County Highway department will then priori- tize the applications according to degree of snow problem and amount of traffic on the road. Lac qui Parle living snow fence program will compensate $1100.00 per acre in the easement area, which will require a thirty-year easement. The snow storage area will be com- pensated $500.00 per acre for incon- veniences caused by the extra snow. Each site needs to have an on-site visit to determine the needs of the area. Landowners may choose species of trees, however we will be trying to use species native to Minnesota. If eli- gible, the land may also be enrolled into a continuos CRP program for liv- ing snow fences. The funds are limited for this pro- gram and will need to be allocated for planting in the spring of 2000. For more information on this liv- ing snow fence program in Lac qui Parle County, contact the Soil and Water Conservation District in Madison. m I I I I I I I | I m I I ,,.. ,,. _ [] I i I i I I i I i !
