Riparian Field Day June 28.

Pasture Walk and Talk - From Uplands to Lowlands

A Field Day with Cows and Fish

Now is a good time for landowners to walk their property and evaluate their management practices. On Wednesday, June 28th Riparian Specialists Norine Ambrose and Jennifer Caudron are bringing their expertise in the assessment and management of that vital green zone of plants that protects our creeks, rivers, and lakes.

Cows and Fish works with landowners to foster a better understanding of how improvements in grazing and other management of riparian areas can enhance landscape health and productivity. While this field day has a focus on livestock producers, anyone with an interest in how riparian areas function are welcome to attend.

The day includes a mix of indoor conversation and hands-on assessment in the field. Learn to identify common riparian plants, tune your eyes to what “health” looks like in a riparian area, see how nest boxes and wildlife friendly fences can enhance habitat, and take home ideas for management strategies that will work on your land. Through Lac Ste. Anne County’s ALUS program, agricultural producers may be eligible for funding to implement conservation projects, this field day is an excellent opportunity to start thinking about project potential.

The field day runs from 11am to 4pm. The $10.00 registration fee includes lunch and everyone takes home a copy of the plant identification book Northern Range Plants.
