Chris Helzer to speak at Loess Hills Prairie Seminar

Chris Helzer, the author of The Ecology and Management of Prairies in the Central United States, will be speaking at the Loess Hills Prairie Seminar on June 2. The attendees at the LHPS include many people who do not attend prairie conferences or the Iowa Prairie Network winter meeting. It includes teachers, natural resource people, community members, landowners, and generally people from western Iowa, but it also draws people from MN, IL, SD, and NE as well as the rest of Iowa.

Susanne Hickey as well as MJ Hatfield will speak on Friday. Saturday evening will include a short talk regarding the Missouri River floods and ecological impacts. The session will end with children joining the adults for a program by Douglas Wood, an environmental musician, who will also do a program at the campfire later that evening.
