Biodiversity Seminar 8th June Wedderburn

Why bother about biodiversity on farms?

Explore the benefits of biodiversity on private property in a farming landscape at this community seminar.

Featuring ecologist David Baker-Gabb discussing ways in which biodiversity makes a contribution to sustainable farm productivity. He will use specific examples including the presence of native trees and pollination by bees and birds.

Local Landcare guru Bill Twigg (Regional DEPI Sustainable Farm Practices Award recipient) will recount the first hand benefits he has enjoyed following his efforts to revegetate areas of his properties at Serpentine and Bears Lagoon.

Local presenters from the Loddon Plains Landcare Network, the Wedderburn Conservation Management Network and the North Central CMA will outline their efforts to improve on-farm biodiversity in the area, including the Kooyoora Connections Project.
