Join to learn about planning and implementing conservation measures to address multiple resource concerns including pollinator conservation.
This webinar will present win-win scenarios where pollinator habitat features or protective measures are bundled into conservation practices that meet other resource concerns, such as water quality, soil erosion, other wildlife, and other beneficial insects. The presenters will provide a brief review of pollinator habitat needs, then discuss case studies of how riparian restoration, windbreaks, cover crops, and contour buffer strips can be used to improve pollinator populations, as well as pest management, water quality, soil building, carbon storage, erosion control, and more.
This webinar is sponsored by the National Wildlife Team at the USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center. Contact William L. Hohman, Ph.D., Wildlife Biologist, for more information about the webinar. Contact Mace Vaughan, Joint Pollinator Conservation Specialist, USDA NRCS West National Technology Support Center for assistance with pollinator conservation.
