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 29th webinar will discuss Using Carbon Programs to Achieve Forest Bird Habitat Management. This webinar overviews carbon sequestration science, storage techniques for applications in both young and mature forests, and how carbon guidelines can be used for forest bird habitats.
