TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Two groups are sponsoring workshops in Lawrence designed to teach rural landowners how to restore native prairie habitats.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that (https://bit.ly/1ENFtSz ) the workshops are Feb. 26, March 12 and April 9 at the Lawrence Public Library.

They’re sponsored by the Douglas County Conservation District and the Grassland Heritage Foundation.

The workshops are designed to help landowners identify what plants already are growing on their property, show them how to do a restoration and teach them to manage their newly restored prairie.

The series also will feature information about restoration resources and tools available from area agencies.

Speakers include private consultants and representatives from the Kansas Biological Survey, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
