Tallgrass Prairie Center Native Seed Panel Discussion

Friday, July 16, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

The state of Iowa is roughly 97% privately owned. Landowners implementing conservation practices, like native prairie habitat, are a major driver of the market for native seed in Iowa.  Landowners and conservation planners will join us to discuss their experiences in planning and planting for conservation. We will look for ways to improve the process and increase the success of native seedings by connecting landowners with resources they need.
