April 15 | Webinar: Finding Mutual Opportunities for Soil, Water, and Wildlife by Redefining the Field Edge
Iowa Learning Farms will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 15 at noon about opportunities to convert marginal farmland to native perennial vegetation, and the associated benefits. This presentation will explore the promise and opportunities for taking unprofitable areas out of production and converting them to native perennial vegetation. Adam Janke, an Assistant Professor and Extension Wildlife Specialist at Iowa State University (ISU), will explore where these areas are found in crop fields, what to do with them once they’re found, and how water and wildlife can benefit from this conservation practice. Janke studies wildlife habitat relationships in working landscapes, with a specific focus on how wildlife use water quality conservation practices.
