Join the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and NRCS soil scientists for a FREE soil health workshop and lunch. The Quapaw Nation is hosting the FREE workshop on May 13 in Miami, Oklahoma, covering the benefits and steps to healthy soil.

The workshop starts at 11 a.m. at the Inter-Tribal Council Conference Room, located at 21 N. Eight Tribes Trail, in Miami, Oklahoma. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m.

Topics will include grazing management steps for healthy soil to increase forage, and a Quapaw Nation Soil Health project update, as well as many others subjects.

Soils are often neglected, but some soil microbes and grazing systems can help soils by investing in some simple soil health practices. The workshop will provide participants the opportunity to learn simple steps to improve an operation’s sustainability.

NRCS partners for the workshop include the Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (OTCAC), other USDA agencies, and conservation groups. The Ottawa Conservation District is the district partner for the workshop.

Conservation program discussions will be led by Farm Service Agency, National Agriculture Statistics Service, NRCS, and OCC and others.
