Friday III – 4 p.m.
Join the Xerces Society’s Eric Lee-Mader for a whole farm approach to designing farm habitat that supports wild pollinators, beneficial insects, and more. His focus this year is on integrating biodiversity throughout the seasons using conservation systems that span the entire farm landscape: from managing fencelines and property edges for pollinators and wildlife, to incorporating habitat into the crop itself through cover crop mixes and companion planting. Concepts are illustrated through real world case studies of fruit and vegetable growers, large-scale field crop producers, and others who have made pollinator and beneficial insect conservation a core part of their farm system.
