Field Day: Prairie Walk in Pepin County

August 14, 2021

1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Location: W8957 Goat Back Rd, Pepin, WI

View a prairie up close and take a field walk side by side with NRCS staff, conservation coaches and neighbors that can build our knowledge of prairies, prairie establishment and restoration. Sally Farrar, a passionate prairie manager from Pepin County, will lead a hike through her personal prairie and explain the process for her in regards to seed selection, pollinators and native grasses, drilling vs. tilling, prairie burns and more. Learn about specific grasses, pollinators, wildflowers, grassland birds and other biodiversity that prairies foster.
