Stewards of the Beautiful Land

Trees Forever and the University of Northern Iowa’s Tallgrass Prairie Center invite you become a Steward of the Beautiful Land!

This four-class webinar series explores the importance of native plants and trees in native Iowa ecosystems. Discover how native plants and trees can work for your community to clean our air, water and soil!

Learn About:
  • Plant identification
  • What, where and how to plant
  • Establishment practices
  • Pollinator habitat needs
  • Threats to native habitat
  • Advocacy opportunities 
  • Available resources
In addition to a virtual classroom setting you will have:
  • Have access to many downloadable resources
  • Get hands-on experience in-person identifying plants and seeing native prairie and trees during an optional “walk about.”
  • Be part of an exclusive Facebook group where you can ask questions, share your experiences with your classroom peers, and see timely video examples from our experts.
