Event description

Description

In a grassroots effort to tackle the gnarly problems of prairie reconstruction (planting prairie from scratch), biologists and decision makers from several states convened a workshop in 2012. At this workshop we began a process to name, prioritize and unravel the most vexing problems. This led to the formation of the Prairie Reconstruction Initiative including 11 conservation organizations.


On January 12 the Prairie Reconstruction Initiative Advisory Team will host a seminar for professionals who are engaged in prairie reconstruction. We will share a sneak peek at results from our retrospective study of several 4 - 14 year old plantings, comparing seeding methods (seed mix and planting technique) with the resulting plant community. A new prairie reconstruction database designed to document planting conditions, management actions and monitoring results will also be highlighted. This will be followed by an audience interactive panel discussion with some top prairie reconstruction experts. The day will conclude with an open discussion designed to explore and identify the most important next steps to build on past work and address uncertainties of prairie reconstruction.

This event is free, but please click the green "Register" button in the upper right to RSVP as seats are limited! Registration closes on January 4th.

Lunch will be available for purchase on the day of the event for $10.00, but must be ordered now. The keynote presentation will be held during lunch, so if you do not wish to purchase the lunch provided you should bring your own as you will not have a break to leave the Learning Center to purchase lunch. You will be asked whether you will be purchasing lunch when you RSVP through this site.
