Extension educators, UMN researchers, and Sustainable Farming Association silvopasture and grazing specialists will share the results of the research conducted at the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge on using targeted grazing impact for vegetation management and restoration of oak savanna. We will present an overview of oak savanna history, restoration and management, as well as a discussion and demonstration of adaptive grazing management and prescribed fire. Some hands-on training will be offered.
Please wear appropriate outdoor footwear and clothing for variable weather conditions. Lunch will be provided.
