March 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Join PARM and the Sand County Foundation’s first webinar collaboration!
Many farms have field edges or underperforming areas that could be seeded to native grasses and wildflowers to benefit bees and butterflies. This presentation will cover the most important considerations to how a pollinator habitat project should be designed, planted and managed. Learn how great habitat results can be easily achieved with a little planning and consideration on the front-end of the project.
