Working Lands for Wildlife Tour for Conservation Partners
WHEN
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
8:30 AM – 12:30 PM
WHERE
INFO
$12 registration fee
(bus transportation and chili luncheon included)
Join us as we tour three projects that focus on maintaining a working landscape, while benefiting both wildlife and our local farmers. These projects demonstrate how conservation practitioners can partner with landowners to create “win-win” solutions that can be sustained into the future. Hear from our conservation partners who have been instrumental to the design and implementation of these great projects.
The stops will include Holland Wildlife area, where rotational grazing has recently been implemented as a management tool to maintain permanent grassland cover for wildlife habitat.
Additionally, we will stop at a farm that is participating in a collaborative project to monitor the impact that diversified cover crops have on pollinators and predatory insects. Last stop will be at Oneida Nation state farm, where we’ll learn how the Oneida Tribe has been working with local farmers to restore the native landscape to support wildlife habitat, while maintaining agricultural productivity. After the tour, join us for a networking chili lunch!
