Looking to attract deer, songbirds, pheasants and butterflies onto your property, at the same time improving air, water, and soil quality?
Grassland habitats provide significant value to our natural resources in Michigan. Grasslands provide filtration to water, collect carbon to help clean our air, and hold down soil to prevent erosion. They also provide homes and food for a variety of wildlife including deer, songbirds, butterflies, turkeys, pheasants, and much more. Pollinators are being threatened, and their greatest need are grassland habitats with vibrant native wildflowers. Without pollinators, we face a threat of food shortages as pollinators allow food to grow.
This workshop will provide an overview of the value grasslands provide on a landscape. It will also provide information on where to find seed and how to plant it, what financial and technical resources are available to assist you in creating and managing grassland habitats, and will showcase the great organizations who are here to help improve our habitats.
There will also be a short presentation on invasive species of concern for SW Michigan.
