Spring has arrived! And that means our Aquatic Invasive Species staff are kicking off the purple loosestrife biocontrol program by getting their hands a little muddy!

These roots will go out to volunteers who grow the plants and then raise the beetles that feed solely on this invasive wetland plant. Stay tuned for the next phase in this program - beetles collection!

Shout out to Jess at Mosquito Hill Nature Center for helping dig roots in the rain yesterday!

Researchers examined how five snake species found in longleaf pine forests in Georgia used locations with different prescribed fire regimes over a 10-year period. They found that prescribed fire applied every two to three years over long time periods benefits both open-canopied forest specialists and generalist snake species.

Great work!

BLM Idaho Fire recently planted 15,000 seedlings around BLM land impacted by the Badger fire. The South Hills won't look the same for a while, but this will help kickstart sagebrush growth and minimize cheat grass growth.

These photos were taken a week before the Badger Fire began.

We have been busy at Stony Hills Nature Preserve! This month our team got to work planting native prairie grasses and wildflowers in areas that had invasive species removed and erosion repaired. Many of these wildflowers and grasses can be planted in your own yards to help pollinators. Look at your local nurseries to find plants like milkweed, aster, coneflower, penstemon, and prairie dropseed! Be sure they are a native species and not treated with pesticides. You can also shop online at https://buff.ly/3bvPHzA or at https://buff.ly/3epaG9h
Special thanks to Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for helping us with this restoration project.

We are so very fortunate to have so many strong women working in conservation in our state!

NRCS highlighted some of their staff in recognition of National Women's History Month.
One of those recognized was Tally Hamilton, farm-bill biologist. As a farm-bill biologist she focuses on conservation programs and habitat planning. The purpose of such biologists is to assist landowners in designing, developing and funding habitat improvements on private lands.

Hamiltons advice to young people interested in a career in conservation is to seek volunteer opportunities and internships.

Much appreciation to Tally and all the Wisconsin women in conservation.

Climate change has and will play an increasing role in the decline of ecosystems and our natural environment. Some may say this is an unfortunate-but-unavoidable consequence of human economic development. For others, though, this consequence is indicative of a species not in sync with its surroundings.

Check out our latest blog in our RE:Climate series for a closer look at what's happening.

Our Grazing Specialist / Soil Conservationist Robert Bauer serves NRCS customers in Crawford County, Wisconsin. He will be sharing success stories in the coming months.

Part of Roberts role includes providing technical assistance on pasture best management practices. Frost seeding clovers at this time of year is a simple way to improve pasture yield, diversity, and create pollinator habitat. Broadcast the seed and freezing and thawing cycles bury it in the soil. The grey coating on the seed contains a bacteria that helps the plants to capture nitrogen (free fertilizer). A mix of red and white clover species benefits a greater variety of pollinators, including monarchs, native bees, and honeybees. Contact our grazing specialists for more tips like this!

Our Northern Plains RC&D Council secured USDA Rural Development Funding to conduct a local foods feasibility study. This is an article following our presentation of the study last week. If you wish to see the study or discuss it, please contact us at [email protected]
The Northern Plains RC&D Council has been working with an NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program grant to increase cover crop planting for the past four years. Here is an article about a recent tour.
Sharing one of the things our Council is involved with: Our Local Foods survey is now live on Survey Monkey! Please take the survey and then share this page with your friends! Here is the link to take the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NENDlocalfoodpublic The target audience is northeastern ND, but responses from around the country will help us to create a comparison baseline, so all responses are valuable. Thank you for taking time to complete this survey regarding local food products which is a key part of the Northeast ND Local Foods Through Cooperation Feasibility Study. The purpose of the study is to identify opportunities and obstacles to expanding Local Foods in northeastern ND. In this survey we want to hear and understand your thoughts on local food products. Local foods are generally those which are produced within 100 miles from the point of purchase, or within a smaller geographical region, and sold directly to consumers or with only limited middlemen, such as a cooperative. "The Study is being sponsored by the Northern Plains Resource Conservation and Development Council with funding from USDA Rural Development. We are an Equal Opportunity Organization. If you should need assistance completing this survey due to language or disability barriers, please contact Council Member Jason Fewell at (701) 662-1554 or [email protected] or Study Coordinator Jo Gilje at [email protected]. Please "Like" this page Northeast ND Local Foods - NPRC&D for more information and updates on local foods and the feasibility study.
