The Great Plains is a difficult place to manage landscapes. Free workshops from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum address some of those challenges with presentations late November into December.
Afternoon sessions from 1-4 p.m. are aimed at professionals, public land managers and grant recipients. They will emphasize resource conservation, biodiversity, native plants, pollinator health, stormwater management, water conservation and community vitality. Workshop leader Justin Evertson said communities will learn about grant funding and other resources to improve and better manage local landscapes.
