Essex The Essex Region Conservation Authority will host a free Prairie Pollinator Workshop on Tuesday, March 24 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM in Committee Room C at the Essex Civic Centre – 360 Fairview Avenue West, Essex. Space is limited so pre-registration is required at https://essexregionconservation.ca/education-and-events/prairie-pollinator-workshop/.

In addition to learning how to get involved in restoring prairie habitat, participants will learn about the environmental benefits of native tallgrass, planting and establishment techniques, as well as maintenance best practices. This workshop will also explore grants and financial assistance that is available to landowners, as well as the potential challenges of establishing prairie habitat and ideas to overcome them.

ERCA is looking forward to receiving input from the local farming community and rural landowners, and will be hosting speakers Joanne Sanderson, from the Ontario Soil & Crop Improvement Association, as well as local farmer Henry Denotter. Both will be on hand to share their expertise and experiences.
