On-the-ground actions by landowners are key to the conservation of forest birds. Learn what you can do on your own property by registering today for the next Woods, Wildlife and Warblers webinar at 10 am on July 23! This webinar builds on the previous webinar presented by Steve about Vermont's role in conserving important bird species, but you can definitely attend this one even if you missed that one.

Wildlife habitat remains one of the main reasons that many people own land. Questions about how to actually go about creating or maintaining great habitat for birds and other wildlife are often on landowners’ minds. What are birds looking for in my woods? Is wildlife habitat compatible with other things I want to do in the forest? What in the world is an expanding gap irregular shelterwood? The list goes on and on.

For over a decade Audubon Vermont has been assisting landowners in thinking about how to incorporate consideration of birds and their habitat needs into forest management. Steve Hagenbuch, Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Conservation Biologist, will guide us through the process of understanding the habitat needs of birds, management techniques that help provide those needs, and other forest health benefits to management with birds in mind.

This webinar is free, but registration is required. Please register today at this link.


About the speaker, Steve Hagenbuch:

Steve is a conservation biologist with Audubon’s Working Lands and Healthy Forests programs where he works with landowners, foresters, and other natural resource professionals and partners to promote forest management activities that integrate timber and maple sugarbush management with migratory songbird habitat. Steve is currently a professional member of The Forest Stewards Guild, a member of the Waterbury Conservation Commission, and founder and chair of the Waterbury Land Initiative.  He received his master’s degree in conservation biology from Antioch University New England where he studied the implications of maple sugarbush stand structure and composition on the migratory songbird community. 

Woods, Wildlife and Warblers is a non-profit partnership whose goal is to provide Vermont's landowners with the information and resources you need to better care for your woods and the wildlife that calls them home. This webinar is part of a series to help landowners learn what they can do to steward their land. Learn more here.
