This field day is intended for people actively involved in the prairie reconstruction process. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions and share experiences and knowledge with other reconstruction practitioners from similar geographic locations. This is an informal gathering that allows information exchange and discussion on various topics relating to prairie reconstruction.
Diverse prairies are resilient prairies. But how do we create diverse reconstructions and maintain that diversity through subsequent management? This field day will cover how to plant and manage for diversity in prairie reconstructions by visiting several different sites in the Lamberton WMA complex in SW Minnesota. Topics include planting method, seed mixes, and management actions including timing and intensity of fire, grazing, and/or haying that promote diversity.

ITEP offers training to tribal environmental professionals to build their capacity to address climate change issues. The courses are taught by instructional teams that include staff from ITEP, federal agencies, universities, and/or organizations, and most importantly, the tribes themselves, who share their expertise and experience.
This free workshop will provide hands-on training in applying climate-smart principles to on-going natural resource management plans and projects. Teams, consisting of two or more people, will be coached on integrating the climate-smart conservation framework into on-going work.
Learn to communicate more effectively about science with people outside your field, including the general public, policy makers, the media, donors, and prospective collaborators in other disciplines.
What’s currently going on with climate change in Alaska, and how do we best engage audiences on climate issues?
If you’ve been wondering about these and similar questions, save-the-date – October 21st, and join the Earth to Sky interagency partnership for an in-person mini-course in Fairbanks, with their partners from NASA, National Park Service, and many other agencies and organizations.
