Natural Capital Accounting Field Day
Environmental accounting provides standardised, quantifiable assessments of the physical state of environmental assets, including soils, native vegetation and wildlife. These measures can be used to understand whether on-farm actions improve or degrade natural capital and establish a link between the environmental condition and economic decision-making.
During the field day, Accounting for Nature experts Dr Amanda Hansson and Annie Keleher will take you through the fundamentals of environmental condition accounting, account stratification and aggregation of field data. In the afternoon, you can also participate in practical exercises, including field measures of the environmental condition of native vegetation, conducting fauna surveys and collecting soil data.

If you have any questions about the field day, please email Landcare Farming Project Manager Ang Hammond at: firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: due to limited numbers (30) it’s best to register early. We’re looking to target primary producers (despite the clash with seeding! and maybe vintage) so please think about who might want to attend, and feel free to forward the invite.
A light lunch will be provided on the day, 9am – 3:30pm, with a practical session outside in the afternoon.
