Conservation + Agriculture Learning Opportunities

I’ve heard many of our farmer-partners with Iowa Learning Farms talk about how practicing conservation is always a learning process, describing themselves as lifelong learners. That’s one of the reasons we host field days – an opportunity for farmers and landowners to learn from one another, as well as from scientists and researchers, about integrating conservation practices into their farming operations. We are currently finalizing details of our Iowa Learning Farms late fall field days/workshops – stay tuned for more field day information coming soon!

Beyond field days, another great learning opportunity can be found in conferences. There are quite a number of exciting conference opportunities coming up over the next few months…
