Science for Everyone Lecture Series: What are Farmers Doing to Conserve and Protect Water, Soil, Air, and Wildlife Habitat?
March 24, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
There is a growing concern over the possible impacts of agriculture on natural resources. Across Wisconsin, farmers face the challenge of making their operation profitable, while conserving, protecting, and improving natural resources through sound farming practices. There are many conservation practices that farmers are adopting to successfully conserve and protect the quality of the water, soil, and air, as well as to protect wildlife habitat. During this session participants will become familiar with some of these conservation practices such as crop rotation, residue management, contour farming, cover crop, field border, managed grazing, grassed waterway, nutrient management, and feed management and how these conservation efforts work to balance the environmental needs with the people needs.
Fee: Free for all participants ($5 donation appreciated). No registration required.
