2015 Grassland Restoration Network Workshop July 21-23, 2015

The 2015 Grassland Restoration Network Workshop is coming up in just a few weeks.  This year’s workshop will be located at Moorhead State University’s Regional Science Center and The Nature Conservancy’s Bluestem Prairie near Hawley, Minnesota.  As with previous workshops, this one will focus on both the nuts and bolts of converting cropland to high-diversity prairie and broader issues regarding how to make prairie restoration as effective as possible from a landscape conservation perspective.  This year, we will be visiting a range of interesting restoration sites, including The Nature Conservancy’s Bluestem Prairie and Glacial Ridge Project, Prairie Restoration Inc.’s Bluestem Farm, and several federal and state restoration projects in northwestern Minnesota.  It should be a great opportunity to learn from the successes and challenges faced by people restoring prairie in that part of the country.  I’m really looking forward to it.

Registration has been limited to keep numbers manageable for tours, but there are slots available if you’re interested in joining us this year.  You can see the agenda and registration information here.

I hope to see you in northwest Minnesota next month!
