T&L 2900: MC: Northern Prairie Grazing Lands Ecology Workshop 2021
This workshop provides an opportunity for teachers to apply scientific concepts to land management and wildlife habitats in grazed grassland ecosystems at a working ranch. Prior to the face-to-face learning event, four online lectures/discussion sessions will review science concepts relevant to regenerative agriculture in North Dakota grasslands. The goal of the workshop is to advance application of science and hands-on learning to practical agricultural management while meeting the needs of the curriculum.
The face-to-face learning event is scheduled for June 5, 2021 at a ranch north of the town of Turtle Lake, North Dakota. We will visit and survey habitats located within a grazed grassland. A tractor-driven wagon will be available for those with difficulty walking. Water and portal-potties will be available, but participants will be responsible for their own lunches. Camping on site is available the evening before the event for those traveling from distant locations.
