In these challenging times when field days and in-person gatherings are postponed, and we all adjust to the new reality of social distancing, ILF will host weekly webinars each Wednesday at noon. These new weekly webinars will supplement the regular monthly webinar series hosted by ILF and allow us to continue providing timely education on issues related to water, soil, wildlife, and other conservation topics. The first weekly webinar, on Wednesday, March 25th, will focus on carbonate research and the potential for carbon storage in Iowa soils.
