Wildlife Friendly Farming and Ranching Event
Don’t miss this fun and informative workshop coming up Thursday, May 31. Agenda includes a prairie walk on the property’s 40-acre remnant prairie, whole farm management for wildlife, KDWPT’s Habitat First Program, and conservation easements. There will be many local conservation staff available to support you in reaching your habitat goals. The conservation district is grilling hot dogs so it’s fine to come hungry! RSVP to 913-294-3751 Ext. 3.
