Free event in Cherokee, Iowa.
This field day will begin with a visit to a newly seeded plot of pollinator habitat. Next, we will visit existing plots in their 2nd and 4th year since planting. Local wildlife biologists will be speaking about establishment and proper maintenance, i.e., mowing, spraying, and the signs that indicate a healthy stand of native forbs and grasses. We will end our field day by returning to The Grainery and eating a meal provided by Nichol’s Smokin’ BBQ while the local NRCS and FSA staff answers any other questions the group has.
