Saturday Session III

Features such as native grass buffers or flowering shelterbelts bring ecological benefits to your farm. Learn about design planning tools, financial resources and market incentives, and explore cost-benefit analyses of various types of habitat restoration. Bring your farm map (or quickly sketch it) to see how and where to include these features on your farm for the most benefit.

Eric Lee-Mäder co-directs the Pollinator Conservation and Agricultural Biodiversity program at the Xerces Society. Since 2008, Eric’s team has restored pollinator habitat in over 400,000 acres. He’s the author of Attracting Native Pollinators, and Farming with Beneficial Insects.
