Anyone interested in pasture management and fencing systems are invited to attend a free field day and farm dinner event from 5 to 8:30 p.m. July 16 at Riverbend Ranch in Tenino.

The event is co-hosted by the Thurston County Washington State University Extension and Riverbed Ranch.

Focusing on grazing management for forage productivity and habitat, this event will include discussions on how grazed, working lands can take endangered species into consideration when developing Thurston County’s Habitat Conservation Plan.

“Attendees will also learn about butterfly populations in grazed and ungrazed lands, and opportunities to enhance the ecological value of working lands by seeding native species in pastures,” states a Board of (Thurston) County Commissioners press release.

The dinner will consist of pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans, cornbread and other items.

RSVP to Stephen Bramwell at bramwell@wsu.edu or call 360-790-9308 for more information.
