Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

Americans count on trees and forests to provide shade and shelter, jobs and products, and clean air and water, both today and for generations to come. However, non-native insects and diseases are destroying North American trees and forests. In some cases, entire species of trees are being removed from our forests and neighborhoods, causing economic and environmental costs and reduced quality of life in our communities. In this webinar, the authors of Fading Forests III: American Forests: What Choice Will We Make? will present policy and management options that can protect our trees and forests, followed by comments by a panel of experts from government, industry, and non-governmental organizations.

Join the webinar sponsored by the Environmental Law Institute, co-sponsored by the National Invasive Species Council on Thursday, June 12 from 1-2 p.m. Learn more and RSVP at the Environmental Law Institute or join us at the Extension office to view the program and discuss it afterwards.
