Liberating the Prairie: A Review of Tree & Shrub Removal Techniques – Dyck Arboretum Native Plant School

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

$5.00

Join Brad Guhr to learn about how prairie ecosystems rely on regular forms of disturbance to maintain their existence. With the removal or reduction of the historical frequencies of fire and grazing, prairies across Kansas are transitioning to Forests. We’ll review the latest techniques to help in reclaiming our prairies from invading shrubs and trees.

The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains offers numerous workshops that encourage the use of native plants in landscaping. Native plants are drought-tolerant, ornamental, and provide food and shelter to wildlife. A landscape rich with native plants can be enjoyed for its beauty and the wealth of birds and pollinators it attracts. All classes are $5 per person and will be hosted via Zoom.

You will be sent an email providing the necessary information for joining the online meeting. If you are unable to attend the live session, please remember we will send the recording following the live meeting.

All classes will begin at 7 pm and run approximately 45-50 minutes and then conclude with a question & answer session.
