Restoring Rare Habitats for Wildlife and Water Quality – Oxbows – Virtual Field Day

By Practical Farmers of Iowa


Iowa once boasted an incredibly diverse landscape. In this three-part series, landowners Jeff and Nancy share their vision for their land and discuss the work they are doing on their property to restore rare and declining habitats.

In part 1 of this series, we discuss oxbow restorations. Jeff and Darrick will discuss the what, where and why of a critical wetland restoration strategy.

Also hear about Jeff’s ongoing partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and learn about financial and technical assistance opportunities from USFWS biologist Darrick Weissenfluh.
