About

Despite their use in wildlife habitat development over the past 20 years, landowners and land managers often have mixed results when establishing and managing native grasses and may have misconceptions as to what constitutes a quality native grass stand. Even though establishing and managing native warm season grass communities can be challenging, success can be achieved using established management practices. The instructors will take a common-sense approach to wildlife and pollinator response to vegetation management; availability and selection of conservation practices; Farm Bill mid-contract management; and the use of fire, disking, herbicide and interseeding in NWSG stands. The program combines classroom sessions with field tours and activities.

For your convenience, the same program is offered on different dates, Aug. 20th and Aug. 21st at John S. Wright Conference Center, Martell Forest.

Registration

The registration cost is $50 due by August 12, 2019. Pre-registration is required for planning purposes. The registration price includes program materials, light morning refreshments, and a hot buffet lunch.
