The Root River SWCD, Fillmore SWCD, and the MN Land Trust are partnering to present an informational workshop to local landowners who have an interest in conserving their land and protecting it for future generations. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 18 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Rushford Fire Hall in Rushford, Minn.
There will be information presented on a wide variety of conservation options for landowners. Representatives from the local SWCDs, the Minnesota Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy, and Trust for Public land will be available. Presenters will discuss conservation planning for your cropland and non-cropland acres. Snacks and refreshments will be available.
Minnesota’s distinctive Southeast Blufflands are home to the state’s more diverse array of forest, prairies, streams, and wildlife. This unique habitat has diminished dramatically in the past several decades, though, threatening the plants and animals that call our state home. In order to protet and preserve our iconic bluffland, the Minnesota Land Trust is launching a new phase of its innovative Southeast Blufflands Protections Program, and is seeking willing landowners who want to conserve their forests, woodlands, prairies, and surrounding areas in Wabasha, Olmsted, Winona, Mower, Fillmore and Houston counties.
