LYONS, NEBRASKA – Women landowners, women beekeepers, and women interested in conservation, native pollinators, and native plants throughout Nebraska are invited to “Women's Learning Circle: Prairie Restoration.” This free, online event is hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs.

The third in a series of four pollinator-focused women's learning circles is set to begin Tuesday, June 30, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., via online video conference.

“We’re looking forward to the continuation of these online learning circles,” said Erin Schoenberg, project associate with the Center for Rural Affairs. “What I love about the video conference format is that it allows women from all over Nebraska to participate. It’s an easygoing setting for knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer discussion.”

Sarah Bailey, naturalist educator and greenhouse manager at Prairie Plains Resource Institute, will cover an overview of prairie restoration in the state, details regarding the process of prairie restoration, and more.

Registration is required by noon on June 30, to make sure attendees receive log-in details in time for the event. Visit to register or for more information. Contact Schoenberg at or 402.499.2781 with any questions.
