Designing & enhancing shelterbelts for bird biodiversity – free Webinar

June 19, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Join Sustainable Farms ecologists Dr Mason Crane and Colleen O’Malley from the Australian National University for a webinar to learn about:

– Sustainable Farms surveys and studies into shelter belt design and enhancement

– Benefits of shelter belts on woodland birds and how that can be enhanced

– The role shelter belts can play in supporting beneficial insect communities on farms – critters such as the dung beetle, hoverflies and predatory mites and how a shelter belt can support them!

The discussion will focus on how this applies to agricultural landscapes within the North East Vic, South West Slopes, Central Tablelands & Murray-Riverina.
