Lamberton Wildlife Management Area


Diverse prairies are resilient prairies. But how do we create diverse reconstructions and maintain that diversity through subsequent management? This field day will cover how to plant and manage for diversity in prairie reconstructions by visiting several different sites in the Lamberton WMA complex in SW Minnesota. Topics include
planting method, seed mixes, and management actions including timing and intensity of fire, grazing, and/or haying that promote diversity. Additional details about parking, site locations, and general logistics will be shared with attendees as the field day approaches.
