Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to achieving our mission of protecting essential ecosystem services, creating sustainable working lands, and enhancing biodiversity.

Native Warm-Season Grass Forages and Grazing Management for Bobwhites is targeted to technical advisors who develop grazing management plans with landowners. It is presented in support of the Working Lands for Wildlife – Northern Bobwhite, Grasslands, and Savannas Framework for Conservation Action.
Participants are provided with science-based information related to native warm-season grass forages, their attributes, proven establishment techniques, management guidelines and integrating grazing management with bobwhites.
This webinar has been approved to count for up to three continuing education units (CEUs).
With his new book, Native Grass Forages for the Eastern US, Pat Keyser, professor and director of the Center for Native Grasslands Management at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, shares decades of experience combined with the latest science on using these grasses in twenty-first century agriculture.
Keyser’s book provides a holistic view of using native grasses on today’s farms. More than 200 graphs, charts, tables and pictures illustrate many of the concepts presented in the text. Appendices provide in-depth information on seed vendors, seedling identification tips and additional resources.
Hardcopies of the book are available for purchase through the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture Extension for just $25.

The Landscape Partnership is a virtual portal that supports landscape-scale conservation by better connecting professionals and landowners to one another and to the resources they develop. Successful conservation is built upon good working relationships, access to key tools and products, and the knowledge needed to apply them in the field. The LP Learning Network is one space made possible by the Landscape Partnership.
