A preconference workshop on gray wolf managment will be held in conjunction with the Native American Fish and Wildlife Southwest Region Conference.

The western Corn Belt is a regional hotspot for cropland expansion and grassland loss. To gain insights into these processes, a team from South Dakota State University collected data on farm operators and their land use decisions in eastern ND and SD through a mail survey. Overall, 40% of operators converted grassland to cropland between 2004-14, with a converted area equal to 5.1% of surveyed farm acreage.

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.
