Event Details





Linn County Landowner Forum 

The Fourth Annual Linn Landowners Forum will take place on Sunday, September 29, 2019, at the Monarch Research Project, 4970 Lakeside Road, Marion. If you are a Linn County landowner and interested in adding prairie to your land, starting or improving pollinator prairies, improving woodland health, talking with conservation experts, and more, this is the event for you!





Now in its fourth year, the Linn Landowner Forum is designed to help landowners interested in restoring native habitat on their land. Adding native habitat to your land benefits insects and wildlife, improves water quality, reduces flooding, and increases the value of your property! Each year this event keeps getting bigger, as Iowans begin to learn about the benefits of native, pollinator-friendly habitat. This year will definitely be our biggest yet. As always, the event includes:

  • 20+ vendors offering products and services targeted at habitat preservation
  • Fun, informative workshops
  • Opportunities to work one-on-one with habitat restoration experts
  • Inspirational speakers 
  • Free Linn Monarch Seed Mix giveaway
  • Spectacular butterfly release
  • Door prizes and more!

Did we mention this is going to be our biggest year ever? 

This year, we are thrilled to be hosting Dr. Doug Tallamy, the foremost national expert on insects and green infrastructure to educate, empower, and yes, even entertain us! Tallamy will take all of us on a stunning, visual journey, showing us how nature can --and will!-- provide for itself through a complex web of life that is highly dependent on a balance between plants and insects. Throughout this scenic tour of nature's miracles, he argues we all can “pay it forward” to nature by simply including more native plants in our landscapes. Recognized for his seminal book, "Bringing Nature Home," Tallamy sounds the charge for environmental responsibility as he offers us a guide to restoring “the little things that run the world.”
