Eco-buffer and Shelterbelt Workshop

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Interested in enhancing your land’s habitat value for wildlife such as pollinators? Reducing wind-stress on your crops, livestock, or farm-site? Trapping snow where you want it to be trapped? Making your land more resilient to flooding and droughts?

If you missed the June 20th Eco-buffer & Shelterbelt workshop, don’t fret. On September 18, Luke Wonneck with the Agroforestry Woodlot Extension Society (AWES) will again be joining Red Deer County to host a 2nd Eco-buffer & Shelterbelt workshop aimed at helping participants put their own designs together, create a site prep plan and a customized management plan specifically for them. A short recap of the last workshop will also be given. 
Available resources and funding opportunities to help with establishing eco-buffers and shelterbelts will also be discussed and you will leave with your own plan of action for your eco-buffer or shelterbelt!

Note: your property's Legal Land Location/Lot Block Plan numbers are required at the event
