The Rainwater Basin Joint Venture will host its 21st annual Informational Seminar on Tuesday, February 9, at the Midtown Holiday Inn, 2503 S. Locust Street, Grand Island. The one-day seminar is an opportunity for landowners, agriculture producers, natural resource professionals, and other interested individuals to learn about and discuss conservation issues, research, and habitat work in the Rainwater Basin and Nebraska’s mixed-grass prairie region.
Four sessions this year will explore current pivot system technology and ways to integrate wetlands into farm operations. Discussions will be led by landowners and by representatives of irrigation system manufacturers.
Additional discussions will include conservation projects and opportunities in the Rainwater Basin, Sandhills, Central Loess Hills and other areas of Nebraska, as well as research on wildlife habitat and natural resources. Click here to see the complete agenda.

A $35 fee, payable at the door, covers all sessions, snacks, and a buffet lunch.

Landowners and agriculture producers are invited to register free of charge and to enter a drawing to win a $50 Cabela’s gift card.
