Are you ready to implement pollinator habitat on your land?
We invite women who own land in Iowa to attend two unique opportunities on March 1st. A virtual, informational Pollinator Learning Circle will be followed by individual Conservation Planning sessions where attendees meet virtually with a conservation planner to start a pollinator habitat plan.
- meet resource professionals who have designed dozens of beautiful plantings;
- learn the steps you should consider whether you have a large or small place;
- start your own plan with a conservation planner;
- learn about existing cost share opportunities using state, federal and private funding;
- and network with other women who own land in Iowa and are caring for the land.
The Pollinator Learning Circle will be held from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. CT on Tuesday, March 1st by Zoom.
The Conservation Planning Sessions* will happen from 1 p.m. CT – 5 p.m. CT. When you register you will be asked to select a 30 minute slot to meet virtually by Zoom with a conservation planner, between 1 – 5 p.m. CT.
We ask participants to identify a location (or locations!) on your Iowa land where you plan to create or improve pollinator habitat prior to attending the March 1st event.
*If you are unavailable for one of the conservation planning slots but would like to schedule a different date to meet with a conservation planner, please contact Stephanie Enloe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-635-3276. x5.
Please register using this link. Once you are registered you will receive an email confirmation with the Zoom link you will need to join us on March 1st. We will follow up directly with you by email with a second link for your Conservation Planning session prior to the event and to ask for location or farm where you have interest in implementing pollinator habitat.
