Thank you to everyone who participated in our 4th annual Wildflower Trails of Mississippi Field Day. Thanks to our partners Mississippi State University Extension Service and USDA, for your continued support.
The morning session began with Dr. Brett Rushing speaking on the Wildflower Trails of Mississippi program and about how communities can join and receive free wildflower seed. We also had MSU Extension Service’s Shaun Broderick speak on native plants and Jeff Harris speak on Pollinators. The final presentation was by Mississippi Department of Agriculture’s Lane Milton speaking on Genuine Mississippi.
We finished the field day by taking a wagon field tour of Dr. Rushing’s wildflower test plots throughout the years as well as Shaun Broderick’s native Mississippi collected seed plots.
