About The Event
Join the Cannon River Watershed Joint Powers Organization as they host the second session of the virtual learning series “Land to Lake Lectures”. During the second webinar “Park the Plow: Benefits of a No-till November,” attendees will learn about the benefits of no-till farming, cover crops, and other conservation practices. These types of conservation practices can have a huge impact on the local water quality of our rivers, lakes, and streams. Rice County farmer Tim Little will share how he switched from conventional farming to conservation farming. Cost-share funding opportunities available for no-till and other conservation practices will also be discussed. This series is offered in collaboration with the University of Minnesota-Extension.
The free webinar will be held on Monday, November 20, 2023, at 12:00 pm over the lunch hour. Register for the webinar at https://z.umn.edu/ParkthePlow. For those who cannot attend, you can still register for the session and a recording of the webinar will be sent to you after it airs. The video will also be posted on the CRWJPO’s website at https://www.cannonriverwatershedmn.gov.
The virtual learning sessions “Land to Lake Lectures” will continue throughout the winter and into the spring with a different topic each month, each time on the third Monday of the month at 12:00 pm.
