Sustaining Wildlife in Agricultural Landscapes

Most land cover in Indiana and the Midwest is agricultural. While there are many opportunities to enhance wildlife habitat in agricultural landscapes, many challenges exist.  This program will provide an current issues and strategies relevant in Indiana and will help wildlife professionals engage farmers and other rural landowners on how to enhance properties for wildlife. There will also be time to interact with other professionals over lunch and an optional trap shoot. The ITWS continuing education committee is extremely excited to offer this program.  We hope you can join us.
