Grassland Bird Conservation on Farms

Grassland bird species at risk, such as bobolink, rely on hayfields and pastures for nesting habitat in Ontario. Bird Ecology and Conservation Ontario, a small non-profit organization, has been working with farmers since 2016 to implement stewardship for nesting grassland birds while trying to minimize negative impacts on farm production. Join us to learn about the grassland birds that may be nesting in your hayfields and pastures and to find out what we have learned so far about the challenges and opportunities for grassland bird conservation in agricultural grasslands. We encourage course participants to share details about their farm operations for a collaborative discussion about finding ways to make space for nesting grassland birds in hayfield and pasture management plans.
