Wild Farm Alliance is pleased to invite you to an upcoming webinar we are presenting along with Xerces Society, NRCS, and UC Davis Extension.
What: Designing Habitat for Multiple Benefits: Wildlife, Soil, Water and Carbon
When: Jan 24, 2017, 2:00 pm (US Eastern)
Using a farm case study, participants will learn strategies to design habitat restoration projects that address multiple resource concerns simultaneously. The idea is not necessarily to create a different practice or habitat project for each resource concern, but rather how to address multiple concerns within a single project.
For this webinar, the case study will be a native grassland / meadow (conservation cover) restoration project adjacent to an almond orchard in California’s Central Valley. Speakers will highlight how the project was designed to improve soil health, prevent run-off into waterways, be attractive to pollinators and other beneficial insects, and sequester carbon.
