Event Date
Event Calendar

Date: September 8, 2022

Time: 1 pm to 2:30 pm ET


Join other ForestHers for an exploration of conservation practices that create and maintain healthy soil, water, plants, and wildlife. Dr. Chris Moorman, with N.C. State University, will kick off the webinar with a brief overview of the relationship between wildlife and their environment, especially how plants create the underlying structure that wildlife needs to thrive.

Next, we’ll hear from three ForestHer landowners (Patricia Sowards, Michelle Riggsbee, and Joanne Rebbeck) who will share their adventures putting conservation into practice on their own land. We’ll hear firsthand lessons about:

- Converting an old pasture to native prairie
- Controlling invasive plants
- Thinning pines
- Prescribed burning
- Creating pollinator habitat
