Picnic on the Farm in the South Kinni Watershed

On July 12th, the South Kinni Farmer Led Watershed Council held a picnic open to all landowners in the watershed at a members property.  About 25 people enjoyed a potluck style picnic followed by presentations onsite.  The presentations included a UAV demonstration by Logan Ahlers from UWRF, a no-till into sod demonstration by the Chair, Brad Peterson, a bee and pollinator study conducted by Nathan Grosse from UWRF, and a pollinator plot walkthrough by member and host Jerome Rodewald.  The picnic received very positive feedback from attendees.
