Inspiring Farmers

What opportunities and tools are we making available to help farmers adopt practices that support beneficial birds?

We are informing, inspiring and encouraging farmers to learn and take actions that support birds through educational events, technical resources, and interactive farm mapping that tracks progress and encourages participation.

A mix of opportunities are available for farmers who are just starting to support birds, and for those who have provided some habitat and want to do more.

 

Education

We hold field day events on the farm and virtually, featuring farmers, researchers and conservationists who discuss the important roles birds play in pest control, and farmers play in supporting and benefiting from birds. We also offer online interactive classes with instructors who have experience with farm conservation practices and pest management strategies.

 

Tools and Resources

We create innovative technical publications and engaging short videos for farmers and agricultural professionals to use. 

 

Mapping Success

In order to inspire more farmers we are mapping farms that adopt these practices to support beneficial birds.
