Victorian Volcanic Plains Conservation Management Network

Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

Ecologically resilient grasslands

Chris Helzer, who is the Director of Science for The Nature Conservancy in Nebraska, writes ‘The Prairie Ecologist’ blog. He recently presented a webinar through the Natural Resources Conservation Service, entitled Using and Fire and Grazing to Maintain Productive and Ecologically Resilient Grasslands.  He discussed what ecological resilience is and how it relates to prairies, and talked about various ways prescribed fire and grazing can be used to manage prairies for biological diversity and resilience.  If you’re interested in this topic and have 45 minutes to spare, a recording of the webinar is available for anyone to watch at this link.
