Organic growers rely on the many services biodiversity provides, but knowing where to find accessible information can be challenging. This webinar will provide an overview of three tools to help you identify and manage wildlife, with an emphasis on wild birds. Online tools covered will be the Merlin Bird ID app, the Habitat Network, and the Cool Farm Tool. There will be an extended 30 minute question and answer period at the end.
This webinar is brought to you by the NIFA OREI funded project: Avian Biodiversity: Impacts, Risks and Descriptive Survey (A-BIRDS).
