Restoring Rare Habitats for Wildlife and Water Quality – Beaver Habitat – 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, including fens, oxbows, beaver habitat, oak savanna and more.

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.

Part 2 of this series explores the work that Jeff, Nancy and Darrick have done to return beavers to the landscape and improve water quality in the North Raccoon River watershed.
