September Virtual Forum

Iowa Roadside Programs

Join us on Tuesday, September 20th at noon for the September virtual forum! This presentation will describe how Iowa’s county roadside vegetation managers maintain roadside vegetation using an integrated, ecological approach. Their management of thousands of acres of public right-of-way can reduce soil erosion, improve safety, increase biodiversity, and improve water quality.
