By participating in the Bird-Friendly Certified Hay Program, hay growers and hay purchasers can make a difference!

About this Event

Have you heard of Bird-friendly Hay? Populations of grassland birds like the Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark are in jeopardy because of habitat loss. Bird-friendly Hay provides a “breeding buffer” for these birds, delaying the first cut so the nests are protected just long enough so the baby birds are strong enough to fly. By participating in the Bird-Friendly Certified Hay Program, hay growers and hay purchasers can make a difference! Come out and learn how you can get involved.
