Natrona County rancher Stacey Scott will be the presenter for the October edition of the Werner Wildlife Study Series Thursday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m.

During his presentation titled, “Regenerative Agriculture: Conservation and Rehabilitation Back at the Ranch,” Scott will share his knowledge about and experiences with regenerative agriculture. Regenerative agriculture is a system “ … that incorporates holistic farming and grazing practices to rebuild the soil and restore soil biodiversity without the use of chemicals,” said Scott. According to Scott, regenerative agriculture leads to increased productivity and decreased greenhouse gas emissions.

A life-long resident of Natrona County, Scott is chairman of the Bates Hole/Shirley Basin Local Sage-Grouse Working Group and was on the committee that wrote the 2003 state conservation plan. Scott is also a frequent presenter at the Werner Wildlife Museum.

“Regenerative Agriculture: Conservation and Rehabilitation Back at the Ranch” is free and open to the public. The Werner Wildlife Museum is located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. For more information, call the museum at 307-235-2108 or email indiahayford@caspercollege.edu.
