Webinar

In this second webinar in a two part series, join Mace Vaughan and Kelly Gill, partner biologists with the Xerces Society and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and Chris Taliga, NRCS National Ecologist, to learn how to plan and contract pollinator habitat plantings. This webinar is designed primarily for NRCS conservation planners, but may be of interest to anyone using Farm Bill Programs for pollinator habitat plantings. Guidance will help planners improve the success of habitat restoration plantings with adequate site preparation, implementation, and periodic maintenance during the plant establishment period.  The webinar will also highlight how to assemble a suite of practices to make the process easier for landowners.
