Nachusa Grasslands will host the next Grassland Restoration Network workshop on September 9, 10, and 11, 2014.
Registration will only be $50 to $75 and include most meals. Such a deal.
The target audience for the GRN workshop are people actively doing/directing high diversity prairie restoration at a significant scale; or doing the science. The workshop has a lot of field time with some inside talks. We talk a lot about techniques, equipment, monitoring and measuring success, the science behind the restoration, and other wonkish topics.
Nachusa Grasslands has over 110 prairie plantings and many nice remnant prairies for you to look at, with many restoration very well done. September is a nice time of year too. Nachusa Grasslands is two hours west of Chicago in Illinois. http://www.nachusagrasslands.org/
So put the date on your calendar, and budget enough money for registration, travel, and hotel. We will have more details at this site by May.
