New York Audubon is holding a series of five one-hour Friday morning webinars in October to train foresters about managing woodlands for diverse bird habitats.
Habitat for birds and other wildlife remains one of the primary management objectives for forest landowners. The training will include a series of five weekly webinars, where foresters will learn about birds in decline, landscape and stand-level planning and management to improve forest habitat diversity, resources available to assist foresters, and details about the pilot Audubon Forester Endorsement Program. Upon completion of the training webinar series, foresters can choose to continue with the next steps in the endorsement process. A fifth optional webinar about carbon programs and forest bird conservation is also offered as part of this training series.
The October 15th webinar will discuss Forest Management for Birds. It will show how to use different silvicultural approaches to create desired habitat conditions for mature and young forest birds to meet their full breeding season needs, creating canopy gaps and patch cuts of varying sizes to benefit most birds.
