The importance of making adequate, clean water available to cattle year-round was the focus of the Kerr Center’s Water and Livestock Workshop on Saturday, June 11. Folks from Oklahoma and Arkansas listened to experts from the center and OSU Cooperative Extension explore water quality and ways to keep water clean on a working ranch.
Kerr Center welcomed thirty gardeners, farmers and ranchers to the Pollinator Conservation Workshop. Anne Stine from the Xerces Society presented information about bees, other pollinator, beneficial insects, and how to identify and plant for these essential insects. David Redhage of the Kerr Center summarized the center’s pollinator project and led a tour of the center’s pollinator-friendly landscape.
