Duplicate event.

Tuesday, April 17, the Barry Conservation District, along with Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Barry County QDMA Branch, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Pierce Cedar Creek Institute will host a free workshop at the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute located at 701 W Cloverdale Rd, Hastings, MI 49058.

The workshop is intended to provide interested landowners the programs and tools available to help create quality wildlife habitat.

Anyone looking to attract deer, songbirds, pheasants and pollinators like butterflies onto their property, while improving air, water and soil quality, are invited to attend this free workshop.

Partners include the Barry Conservation District (BCD), the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), Pheasants Forever (PF), the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Michigan Pheasant Restoration Initiative (MPRI).

Grassland habitats provide significant value to wildlife and to Michigan citizens. They filter water, collect carbon to help clean the air and hold down soil to prevent erosion. They also provide homes and food for a variety of wildlife, including deer, songbirds, butterflies, turkeys, pheasants and insects like bees and butterflies that help pollinate important agricultural crops.

For more information, or to register for the free workshop, click here or contact Anna Mitterling, at amitterling@mucc.org or 517-346-6454.

At 6:45 p.m., there will be snacks, coffee and a meet-and-greet before the event officially starts at 7:00.
