KANSAS PHEASANTS FOREVER AND QUAIL FOREVER ANNOUNCE SUMMER WORKSHOPS

May 22, 2014

Allworkshops are free and open to the public

PRATT – Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are pleased to announce their summer slate of upland habitat tours and workshops, beginning May 28. A total of 15 workshops and tours will be held around the state, hosted by Pheasants Forever Farm Bill wildlife biologists with the assistance of local area partners and statewide partners, including the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism and the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service.  

Workshop topics will range from “Landscaping for Pollinators” (geared toward backyard conservationists and youth educators) to a cover crop tour and roundtable discussions with Kansas farmers. All workshops are free and open to the public; however some will require an RSVP due to space limitations or meals being provided. Most events will be half a day or shorter to accommodate attendees’ busy summer schedules. A complete list of events can be found below.
