SESSION 5: POLLINATING AMERICA'S PRAIRIE: WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN LOOKING BACK AND PLANNING AHEAD FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS Celebrate WORLD BEE DAY and AMERICAN WETLANDS MONTH! Hear their Midewin NTP stories! Midewin Archaeologist & Tribal Liaison Joe Wheeler will moderate this celebratory Silver Anniversary discussion with a few of the inspiring people who have made a difference in the past 25 years. A special focus on pollinating prairie restoration now and in the future with a look at the roles of NFF and USDA FS Youth Conservation Corps programs and more. This is a long-term prairie and grassland restoration process, said Midewin Prairie Supervisor Wade Spang. All along, people of all ages and interests, plus the reliance of the land to provide plant and animal habitat, have been what has made Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie a treasured landscape. This prairie is special, and I hope that you can join the celebrations by participating in the educational and interpretive activities planned throughout 2021.
