September 21 – Wetlands for Farmers – Tom Biebighauser

7 pm, 265 Blackburn Road, by donation

See how farmers are building attractive wetlands in BC to provide habitat for wildlife, and to improve the value of their land. You’ll learn how fields marginal for raising crops can be transformed into well-drained and productive cropland by constructing wetlands. Wetlands are being built on farms across BC to provide drinking water for livestock, and water for irrigating crops. Tom Biebighauser is a Wildlife Biologist and Wetland Ecologist who has restored over 1,900 wetlands in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand.
