Evenings Afield: Grazing for Healthy Beef, Streams, & Trout

May 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

See how pastured cattle, a Class 2 trout stream with heritage brook trout, and a conservation easement coexist on the same property. Learn about producing grass-fed beef, maintaining healthy stream banks and trout habitat, and the ecology of brook trout. DNR staff will shock the stream to reveal the healthy population of trout in Lowery Creek.

The Lowery Creek Watershed Initiative is a grassroots effort to proactively preserve and enhance the environment and quality of life in this unique area. DALC, Taliesin, Iowa County’s Land Conservation Department and several landowners are taking the lead by coordinating education, water monitoring, mapping, land stewardship and community building activities.
