Join Sarah Nizzi, Farm Bill Pollinator Conservation Planner and NRCS Partner Biologist with the Xerces Society, for this informative workshop that is intended for row crop farmers, livestock producers, recreational landowners, and anyone else interested in the many benefits that native plants offer farms and recreational land. Learn from five excellent speakers, including Sarah, on how incorporating natives into agricultural practices and land for recreational uses can benefit farm revenues, livestock health, pollinators, soil health, water quality, and more. The workshop will also feature information on specific NRCS cost-share programs to which attendees may apply to help offset the cost of incorporating natives into their agricultural or land management practices, and a session on invasive plant control.
