About the event

See the impacts of 7 years of strategic management effort on a farm once over-run with wild parsnip, multiflora rose, and honeysuckle and now actively managed for quality grasslands and savanna. Visit a savanna restoration in progress - compare two different on-going restoration strategies side by side. Tour a large expansive grassland that supports Henslow’s sparrows, bobolinks, Eastern meadowlarks, dickcissels and more. Discuss grassland management using fire and mowing.

On site will be resource professionals with information about NRCS cost-share programs that support savanna restoration efforts and pasture health improvements.

Come for the learning and stay for the conversation over dinner. Local grass-fed beef and refreshments will be provided. Please bring a dish to pass.
