The 75th Civil Engineer Squadron Natural Resources department is teaming up with the Ogden Air Logistics Center and 75th Air Base Wing Bird/Wildlife Avoidance Strike Hazard working group to provide a natural and low-cost method of removing birds from the airspace around Hill Air Force Base and the Utah Test and Training Range. The groups have been extinguishing weeds from land surrounding both air fields, as the weeds produce seeds and attract insects that ultimately provide an attractive feast for birds, and planting rhizomatous grasses in its place.
A nationally recognized training workshop will be offered free of charge to parents and professionals from Hill Air Force Base who work with or are parents of children with special needs. The Specialized Training of Military Parents workshop will be held Oct. 26-28 in the Education Building 385, Room 208. The workshop offered Oct. 26 will be open to educators and other professionals working with special needs children and will be held from 8:30 a.m. until noon. The next two days offer full-day workshops for parents as well as educators and professionals, and is offered from 8:30 a.m.
