LA CROSSE, Wis. — Pollinators and upland wildlife are vital to our economy, food sources and recreational opportunities and their loss would be devastating. The lack of suitable native prairie habitat is contributing to a decline in pollinators and upland bird species. The good news is it doesn’t matter if you own hundreds of acres or a small yard, you can help expand available habitat.  This training will provide professional instruction on pollinator biology, the link between wildlife and pollinator habitat, prairie establishment and choosing the best seed mix to fit your needs. Don’t miss out on this one of a kind opportunity to improve habitat for future generations!

There will be four opportunities for citizens and landowners to receive expert guidance on pollinator biology and establishing the habitat necessary to their survival. The schedule of events is as follows: Friday February 24th from 6-8pm in La Crosse, Tuesday March 7th from 6:30-8:30pm in Baraboo, Wednesday March 8th from 6:00-8:00pm in Richland Center, and Thursday March 9th from 6:00-8:00pm in Prairie du Chien. A registration fee of $12 includes a pollinator information packet and prairie seed pack. To receive more information or reserve your spot contact Brandon Bleuer at Brandon.bleuer@swbadger.org or (309) 738-2607.
