Registration is available until noon Thursday, Jan. 31. Walk-in/day-of registration opens at 8 a.m. Feb. 2 at Pine River-Backus High School.

The day will kick off with a keynote presentation by Kent Solberg, livestock and grazing specialist with the Sustainable Farming Association. Solberg will answer many questions regarding the health of soil and what it could mean for the future, food and natural resources.
