Are you interested in creating wildlife and pollinator habitat, harnessing fruit production, mitigating highs winds and flooding, or enhancing water quality on your property? Don’t know where to begin, or just need some helpful tips and tricks?

Join the County of Paintearth, The Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society, Battle River Research Group and the Battle River Watershed Alliance on July 15th, 2019 for a workshop about Shelterbelts and Eco-buffers, and how they can be designed to provide these services to your land!

This workshop includes:

  • A presentation on designing and establishing shelterbelts and Eco-Buffers
