    Webinar Offers Best Practices for Sites to Tell the Modern Ag Story

    Northeast Iowa – Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) will be hosting the webinar “Best Practices in Telling the Modern Ag Story” on Wednesday, February 25 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. CST, as part of a series of Winter Webinars. Lanny Haldy, Amana Heritage Society; Megan Kregel, Iowa’s Dairy Center; and Linda Perrenoud, Jasper County Historical Society Museum will demonstrate how three very different Heritage Area Partner Sites are connecting with current day agricultural practices in their community. What visitors want to know about just might surprise you – wind energy, robotic dairying and methane gas (aka cow poo). Grab some hot cocoa, pull up a seat in front of your computer and avoid the cold during this webinar or any of the others in this series.

    The final webinar of the series is “Silos & Smokestacks General Grant Application,” Wednesday, March 4, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. CST. There is no cost for these webinars, but registration is required. To register, visit
