The seminar will have presentations on grazing, burning, wildlife suitable plants species and more.
- Featured speakers will include:
John Weir on fire science and seasonal burning;
- Dwayne Elmore on upland habitat;
- Derek Wiley on upland biology;
- Tom Cannon on cover crops, soils and no till;
- Marty Williams on crop diversity and
- A NRCS biologist to be determined.
