INHF had a great burn season this spring, burning 23 properties total in 17 counties. That is 996 acres of woodland and prairie that benefited from prescribed fire. We are already seeing new growth on all of these properties. Prescribed fire mimics natural processes, aids in clearing brush and invasive species and encourages new growth of native vegetation. Thank you to the stewardship team, staff and volunteers that helped to make this work possible! #Stewardshipsunday #fire #prescribedfire

‼️HOW TO: Pulling Garlic Mustard Garlic mustard is an invasive species in Iowa and threatens our native species in woodlands and creeks. The plant should be pulled and bagged in the spring to avoid further dispersal of seeds. To remove, pulling should start close to the root and go straight up, ideally removing part of the root. Garlic mustard can quickly take over an area and it may take several years of pulling to fully remove it. The garlicy plant can be used for cooking in recipes like hummus or pesto. #stewardshipsunday

#StewardshipSunday Our ecological stewardship efforts will be tested due to the timing of plants blooming and a shortened work season. But combating invasive species and finding innovative ways to protect the native habitats that make our trails so enjoyable is imperative to our mission. The Invasives Strike Force will march on. 🥾🌿 To learn more about plant identification, ecology, and volunteering with our ecological stewardship programs, please explore the link in our profile. . . 📸: @chrsqrn . . . . . . . . #trails #nonprofit #volunteers #stewardship #hiking #mtb #passion #outdoors #nature #conservation #catskills #breakneckridge #appalachiantrail #camping #backpacking #optoutside #wanderlust #theoutbound #newyork #newjersey #scenicNY #scenicNJ #hikeNY #hikeNJ #forest #mountains #nynjtc #connectwithnature

Last summer, our stewardship interns cleared a small area on this wooded ridge. Just a year later progress is already beginning to show. At first glance the ridge-top showed some signs of prairie with a few sprigs of Indiangrass here and there. After the hard work of our interns, the remnant prairie is beginning to show its true colors. This year a population of Hoary puccoon popped up. All the land needed was a little help from our outstanding interns. If you look closely, remnant prairies can be found in the most unlikely places. Over the past few decades, many prairies that remain have been shaded out by trees, shrubs, and invasive species.  Give them a little help and you may find some unique prairie plants! #stewardshipsunday Photos by Derek Miner

It doesn’t take much time for new growth to appear after a burn! The INHF stewardship team is already starting to see new growth on burn sites all across the state. The team is cautious to create the best conditions for this regrowth by selectively choosing when and where they burn. “It is our goal to leave a portion of our prairies unburned as refugia for plants and animals. We do our best to minimize any negative effects on native plants and animals and leaving refugia is one way to use caution on our small, isolated prairie remnants. This is especially important for small invertebrates because it allows a population to rebound following a burn. Along with leaving refugia, we do our best to vary our burn timing from year to year. All in all, uncertainty still exists in the world of fire effects, so leaving refugia gives us comfort that our prairies will remain biologically diverse into the future,” says Stewardship director, Ryan Schmidt. #stewardshipsunday

It is times like these that we need to support and encourage one another more than ever before. April 19-25, 2020 is National Volunteer Week and while we can’t gather together, we want to invite INHF supporters and volunteers to share new ways they are using their time to benefit nature and get outdoors. Some ideas for serving your community: • find local organizations in need of extra hands • pick up trash near streams or trails • pull invasive species • plant a pollinator-friendly garden • build bird boxes for nesting • write your local representatives about the importance of public land • share your stories about time spent outdoors or volunteering • advocate for natural spaces in Iowa Get creative and share your experiences with us using the hashtag #INHFhelps. Let’s celebrate as a community the best that we can and connect through nature as one. Know that INHF is always a resource for you if you are looking for ways to get outdoors and in need of some fresh air. We want to support you. INHF is so thankful for dedicated volunteers that care for Iowa’s land, water and wildlife. We are excited to celebrate this week! #nationalvolunteerweek #volunteer #stewardshipsunday

Staff at INHF feel lucky to be able to continue much of our work across Iowa during this time. Our entire staff is working remotely and taking precautions to make sure our work is done in a safe and efficient manner. Along with our staff, INHF land ambassadors are still working hard across the state to continue to steward the land. Their hard work, especially now is vital in maintaining and caring for our properties. INHF land ambassadors, Jacie and Chelsea, went out today to to remove invasive honeysuckle at Snyder Heritage Farm. We are always so grateful for the extra help and dedication of our volunteers. #stewardshipsunday

PRESCRIBED FIRE Q&A — Our stewardship team answers your questions about burn season 🔥Why does INHF use fire as a stewardship tool? •We use prescribed fire to recreate an essential natural process that helps our native plant communities thrive. We use prescribed fire as a tool that compliments several other stewardship activities, not an all encompassing solution to ecological problems within our natural plant communities. 🔥How often does INHF burn one site? •How often we burn depends on the stewardship goals and how the land has responded to previous burns and other stewardship practices. Burn frequency is site specific on all the places we burn and is based on site conditions, species present and vegetation type. 🔥What are ideal weather conditions for burns? •Weather is one of the most important things to consider when burning. We prefer different weather for different vegetation types and site conditions. We typically burn with a 5-15mph wind coming from one consistent direction. We usually burn with 30-50% relative humidity, but that can vary based on several other factors. Sunny days are favored as well. 🔥Does INHF only burn on INHF land? •We focus our prescribed burns on land that has been permanently protected by INHF or our partners. ‼️Remember: Prescribed fire should only be used with proper care, planning, and experience. #stewardshipsunday Photos by Derek Miner

Invasive species are non-native species that may harm or disrupt natural ecosystems. Controlling invasive species is a top priority for INHF to ensure that healthy, native and diverse habitats thrive in Iowa. Invasive and non-native species have the potential to negatively impact our native habitats. Stewardship efforts are directed to monitoring and/or removing these species on certain project sites. One strategy for the long-term removal of harmful species is to cut them and then treat them with herbicide. In order to have the most control and safety, INHF stewardship teams opt to use buckthorn blaster applicators when applying these chemicals. This technique cuts herbicide use in half and protects the surrounding species. #stewardshipsunday

“When planting a prairie, it’s easy to get caught up in the details – seed mix ratios, ecotype, seeding rates, seed-to-soil contact, pure live seed – go ahead and explore the rabbit hole, but remember these seeds have been doing this for thousands of years. There’s more to their story than just the specs, give them a little help and they will do the rest,” INHF stewardship associate, Derek Miner says. He recently spent the day planting seeds on a property in the Loess Hills. The seeds were both hand-harvested by volunteers and staff, machine harvested and donated by land owners in the Loess Hills. The formerly tillable land proved to be too wet to farm and will now be turned to reconstructed prairie that will provide many ecological benefits. After being planted, prairie seeds just need a bit of stewardship each year to get established and thrive. Progress can usually be seen 2-4 years after planting, and long into the future. The 4 acres planted will join the intact diverse Loess Hills remnant prairie on higher areas of the property. #stewardshipsunday

Thank you to all of the great volunteers who came out to our winter work day yesterday at Breen Prairie. The team worked to remove undesirable brush from the remnant prairie on the property, focusing mainly on sumac and honey suckle. Remnant prairie is land that has never been greatly disturbed and has maintained some of its original vegetation. Unlike restored or reconstructed prairies, which have been reestablished or returned to prairie, prairie remnants are fragments of the original, pre-settlement prairie landscape. Historically, prairie once covered 75-80 percent of Iowa’s landscape. Now, less than .1 percent of that original prairie remains. We are thankful for the support of staff, landowners and volunteers who help to maintain and protect these special landscapes. #stewardshipsunday

Can you identify any of the native seeds in the photos? Our stewardship team has been working to plant native prairie seeds on properties around Iowa. Planting seeds after a fresh snow is the best time for the team to see where the seeds have been dispersed. The seeds include both prairie flowers and grasses. Winter provides a cold, wet place for stratification for seeds to establish and grow. #stewardshipsunday

Happy #worldwetlandsday! Wetlands provide habitat for many birds, mammals, amphibians and plants as well as being vital for water quality in Iowa. Wetlands once covered upwards of 6 million acres of Iowa. Today, there are less than 5% of those original, high-quality wetlands remaining. INHF, along with many partners, such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service, has completed many wetland restoration projects across the state. Wetland restorations generally consist of shallow excavations of natural depressions that have filled in or degraded over time. This allows shallow, standing water to provide many benefits, such as wildlife habitat and water filtration. Land owners can contact their local NRCS office to learn more about wetland protection and restoration. #stewardshipsunday

Four INHF staff recently participated in a fire training course. This course, revolving around leadership, brought together 25 conservation professionals from across the state. The two-day course was made up of class work and field exercises to develop leadership, communication, team building, and cooperation skills. "This course offered us an opportunity to become better leaders and mentors, not only in a prescribed fire setting, but also in our everyday work,” said INHF Stewardship director, Ryan Schmidt. "This training will help us all become more well-rounded in our approach to land conservation work in Iowa." We are so proud of our stewardship team and staff for always taking steps to be their best and do the best work for Iowa's land.

Prairie plants not only create beautiful landscapes; they also create vital habitat for native birds, butterflies, insects and other species. With the right setting and preparation, prairies can be grown at home. 🌱 The first step is scouting out a space that will receive a lot of direct sunlight and is clear of grass cover. 🌱 Next is choosing the native prairie seeds you want to plant. It is important to confirm that anything you plant is a locally adapted species. You will want a diverse mix of grasses, sedges and wild flowers.🌱 Winter is the optimal time for prairie planting. December-March usually has the best conditions for seed stratification. Seeds can just be scattered atop snow or frozen ground. 🌱 Planting seed is merely a first step, much upkeep and consistency goes into maintaining a natural prairie. To learn more visit our site inhf.org or contact your local county conservation board. #stewardshipsunday

“When I think of what it means to be doing stewardship with INHF, I feel like I am a part of many teams with a common goal. It has been a humbling experience and a privilege to learn from and work with people who have dedicated their careers and lives to conservation.” - Maxwell McCarty Maxwell McCarty has been working as part-time land steward with INHF since March 2019. McCarty was a 2017 land stewardship intern and studies biology and environmental science at Iowa State. “My experience as an INHF statewide stewardship intern was very insightful and had a large impact on how I contribute to land restoration and conservation in the state I was raised in,” he says. He supports our land stewardship department with a variety of land management projects such as invasive species removal and seed harvests. McCarty spends most of his time at Snyder Heritage Farm and Doolittle Praire. “My position with INHF gets me outside, and has been a great way to unplug from classes in a healthy way. I also enjoy witnessing how much an ecosystem can change throughout the seasons and practicing my flora and bird ID skills,” he shares. Thank you Max, for helping protect and restore Iowa for future generations! Photos: McCarty’s work projects and some of the interesting things he encounters in the field. #stewardshipsunday

Some of the most important work we do is on the land. All across Iowa our stewardship team, volunteers and partners are working hard to ensure the long-term health and benefits of conserved lands. The well being of the natural resources on each piece of land is our priority and influences how each project is uniquely managed. In 2019, prescribed fires, invasive species control, prairie reconstruction and seed harvests were all parts of our stewardship efforts. What kind of stewardship practices do you want to learn more about in 2020? #stewardshipsunday

INHF staff and stewardship team performed a prairie burn at a property in Appanoose County last week. Prairie burns bring back natural landscape disturbance which promotes native diversity and reduces woody encroachment and invasive species. Fall is a challenging season for burning, the weather is wet and it’s cold, so burning in the fall is a rare occurrence. “This burn was important because the property is a bit tough to get to. Burning it in the fall relieves stress in the spring and we can get more done in spring. Any chance to get fire on the ground is good” says Land Stewardship Associate, Derek Miner. #stewardshipsunday

During the fall season, our stewardship team is always thinking about the weather. Why? They are looking for favorable weather conditions, as well as favorable fuel and soil conditions for prairie burns. Prairie burns are most viable in fall and spring and have many benefits for the prairie, as the landscape has evolved with fire occurrences. “We look at temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction. We need the fuel (prairie, leaf litter, grass, etc) to be dry and capable of carrying a fire. Prairie grasses dry out surprisingly quickly with good sunshine and a light breeze.” says Land stewardship director, Ryan Schmidt. The stewardship team prepared for good conditions by mowing fuel breaks early in the season so they are ready for a good burn day. #stewardshipsunday

In response to the question, "What does stewardship mean to you," our parishioner, Cherise Matthews said, "Every time we practice our stewardship we allow ourselves the opportunity to serve Christ and draw near to Him. When we give freely with love and gratitude we find that Jesus stretches the elasticity of our hearts. Here at St. Paul's we have the privilege of worshiping together, building community together, being fruitful together all married in true faith." In what ways has Jesus stretched your heart? Is it easier to give each time we give? #stpaulsirvine #stpaulsgreekorthodoxchurch #greekorthodox #easternorthodox #orthodoxchurch #orthodoxchristian #stewardshipsunday

Huge thank you to the @conservcorps crew that worked with our stewardship team this past week! The crew worked to clear a thicket of brush, full of honey suckle, dogwood, and plum at one property which will help the native remnant prairie on the property grow. Remnant prairie often refers to native grasslands that have never been disturbed. They are a rare and valuable landscape in Iowa. During the 8 days the crew worked at 3 different properties across the state. We are happy to have such great partners and hardworking teams to aid in making Iowa’s lands the best they can be. #stewardshipsunday

In response to the question, “What does stewardship mean to you?” Wayne and Barbara House said, “We can never give to the church more than it’s given us.” This raises an interesting question: What is the church? Is it a building, an institution, a body of believers? Is it both the physical and spiritual foundation upon which we build our lives in Christ? When we give back to the church, what are we giving back to? What do you think? #stpaulsirvine #stpaulsgreekorthodoxchurch #greekorthodox #easternorthodox #orthodoxchurch #orthodoxchristian #stewardshipsunday

Stewardship Sunday 2019, The Episcopal Church of St. Alban the Martyr. Today was a vey special day at the Episcopal Church of St. Alban the Martyr, Stewardship Sunday! In addition to mass and a delicious brunch, congregants were asked to prayerfully reflect on God working in and through them, how to allow God to use us and manging God's resources. A biblical world view of stewardship can be consciously defined as: "Utilizing and managing all resources God provides for the glory of God and the betterment of His creation." ... "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it." (Psalm 24:1) The congregation also had the pleasure and honor of receiving Rev. Steve L. Foster, rector of St. Peter's Rosedale who gave today's riveting sermon. Rev. Foster shares our life long Stewardship vision of "Shining our light for all the world to see and journeying to God's Future." A multitude of thanks to Rev. Foster, The Stewardship Committee of The Episcopal church of St. Alban the Martyr, and to everyone who participated and supported Stewardship Sunday 2019! #satm #stalbanthethemartyr #p.s.a.l.m #psalm #stewardship #stewardshipsunday #stewards

Please take a moment to reflect on what the Lord has given you – every mercy, every trial, every blessing. How have you been formed and shaped by what He’s given you? How would you be different without His presence in your life? What will you give back to the Lord? #stpaulsirvine #stpaulsgreekorthodoxchurch #greekorthodox #easternorthodox #orthodoxchurch #orthodoxchristian #stewardshipsunday

As part of our 2020 Stewardship Campaign, we’re asking parishioners what stewardship means to them. Here’s what Mark Hudoff answered, “Stewardship is one thing I can really do. It's tangible. It's not -- 'I forgot to be nice to that guy'. It's more like I'm writing a contract in the eyes of my God for some semblance of payback for what I've been given." What do you think? What does stewardship mean to you? Did you know you can make your 2020 Stewardship Pledge online?

Ever wonder what happens to all the prairie seed collected by our volunteers, staff and stewardship team? Currently the seed is being sorted, dried, bagged and labeled to prepare for planting later in the season. #stewardshipsunday

"The reason I think you should continue to support this community is because of how influential it's been in helping everyone who goes there...It's welcoming, it's a place that you can go and find people to lean on, there are lots of fun and wonderful opportunities...This is where I feel like I'm at home." Caroline Hempleman⠀ ⠀ As commitment Sunday approaches, consider how First Pres has influenced your life, and what you can commit to not only sustain, but GROW the reach of the church in your own life, and the lives of everyone in the community - from the Family Night program, our ongoing PADS night, our youth mission trips, and the programs we run in this building. ⠀ ⠀ Thanks to your donations, we are offering God’s love to the members of this community by growing their faith and walking alongside you through times of joy and sadness. We cry with you through deaths. We rejoice with you through weddings and births. We counsel you through difficult times with your marriages and your children. ⠀ ⠀ The blessings of your generosity touch so many people, some of whom you know and many who you will never meet. That is the very definition of Jesus’ generosity!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #stewardshipsunday #givingsunday #givefreely #giveregularly #supportthechurch #givingcampaign #supportthecommunity #supportthechurch #givefromtheheart #generosity #generosityofspirit #spiritofgenerosity

#StewardshipSunday We are called to be good stewards of our personal vocations. Therefore, St. Paul's prayer for the Thessalonians is also ours: "May our God (make us) worthy of his call and may He fulfill by His power every good purpose and every effort made by faith." . #domingodemayordomía Somos llamados a ser buenos administradores de nuestras vocaciones personales. Por lo tanto, la oración de San Pablo para los Tesalonicenses es también la nuestra—“que nuestro Dios (nos) haga dignos de su llamada y que El cumpla por Su poder cada buen propósito y cada esfuerzo realizado por fe.” . . #catholic #catholiclife #catholics #catholicfaith #churchlife #catholicchurch #romancatholic #catholicism #catolicos #catolico #catolica #catolicas #catolicosiempre #catolicosoy #amor_catolico #soycatolico #católica #católicas #católicos #católico #católicosoy #catolicismo #católicismo #jovenscatolicos

The Olszeski Family loves and values so many aspects of 1st Pres! From the messages, staff and people, to the youth group and Mission Factory.⠀ ⠀ As Stewardship Sunday approaches it's time to think about the commitment you'll be making to the the church this year. This year's campaign is titled "Blessings of Generosity." Like the branches of a tree, when you engage in acts of generosity, it can impact people who you never anticipated would benefit from your actions. ⠀ ⠀ At First Pres, your generosity is creating blessings for people who you know and those who you will never meet. Your money ensures we can run quality programs for the individuals and families who utilize our church weekly and safety nets for those who need a helping hand. This year, we hope you will help us to continue the tradition of supporting the people we touch by providing monetary support to our ministries and programs.⠀ ⠀ What do YOU love about 1st Pres? Let's see it in the comments here, while we contemplate this year's commitment.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #stewardshipsunday #givingsunday #givefreely #giveregularly #supportthechurch #givingcampaign #supportthecommunity #supportthechurch #givefromtheheart #generosity #generosityofspirit #spiritofgenerosity

#StewardshipSunday Both today's first reading and the Psalm clearly tell us that the Lord hears the plea of the poor. Have I been given the gifts — of time, of money or of abilities — to be the means by which God responds to the their needs? . #domingodemayordomía Tanto la primera lectura de hoy como el Salmo, nos dicen claramente, que el Señor escucha la suplica del pobre. ¿Se me han dado los dones – del tiempo, del dinero o las habilidades – para ser el medio por el cual Dios responde a sus necesidades? . . #catholic #catholiclife #catholics #catholicfaith #churchlife #catholicchurch #romancatholic #catholicism #catolicos #catolico #catolica #catolicas #catolicosiempre #catolicosoy #amor_catolico #soycatolico #católica #católicas #católicos #católico #católicosoy #catolicismo #católicismo #jovenscatolicos
