News Release

Night of Conservation

Improving habitat for landowners and for wildlife will be the focus of the upcoming meeting sponsored by University of Illinois Extension - Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit, LaSalle County Farm Bureau, LaSalle County Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Pheasants Forever, to be held on March 21, 2017. The public is invited to attend.

“Whether you live on a farm or in an urban setting, wildlife is a part of your everyday life.  Many species have adapted their way of living to be your neighbor while others around us need our help to conserve their kind due to the pressure of a forever changing environment,” Daryle Wragge, Extension Ag Program Coordinator, encourages everyone interested to join in for a night of information.

The “Night of Conservation” program will be held at the LaSalle County Farm Bureau meeting room in Ottawa. The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. Highlighted topics and speakers include:

  •  Importance of Maintaining & Enhancing Wildlife in Our Communities:

              Peggy Doty, Extension Educator, Environmental and Energy Stewardship

  • Conservation Reserve Program Options/Soil & Water Conservation Practices to Enhance Wildlife Habitat: Mark Baran, NRCS District Manager
  • Bird & Habitat Enhancement and Wetland Improvement: Jason Bleich, Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Biologist
