Presenter: Matt Smith, Research and Conservation Director, Riveredge Nature Center

Description: The addition of 100 new acres of fields and forest has afforded Riveredge the opportunity to convert traditional row crop agricultural production into something more diverse and native. Hear from Matt Smith, Research and Conservation Director, on the Silvopasture Project on their newly acquired Sandhill Lake Wildlife Reserve. Matt will discuss their overall agroforestry goals, field planting layout, plant care and maintenance, wildlife monitoring/recruitment, individual crop biographies/uses, and scalable ways to grow natives on your own property.
