Diversifying Pollinator Habitat on a Multi-Generational Illinois Farm
Are you looking to diversify your pollinator habitat? Are you tired of the endless mowing of brome and bluegrass? Do you want information on local, hardy seed sources? Join Nancy and John Brannaman as they showcase the ongoing conservation efforts on their Illinois farm.
Over the years, the Brannamans have added native prairie mixes, Conservation Reserve Program wetland mixes and Conservation Stewardship Program pollinator plots to their land. More recently, they’ve contracted with Pheasants Forever to seed another 13 acres of CRP pollinator habitat. In this webinar, Nancy and John will discuss how they do this work. You’ll learn about the seed and equipment they use, like extenders for small seeds. They’ll also explain how they prepare the seed bed and handle mowing, weeding and burning.
