Lewis County’s Washington State University Extension is sponsoring a 10-week course beginning Sept. 11 on enhancing a small-acreage property called “Living on the Land — Stewardship for Small Acreages.”

The class will take place on from 6 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Wednesdays from Sept. 11 to Nov. 6 at the Lewis County Administration building.
