Foresters for the Birds webinar

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST

Foresters for the Birds is an innovative project that works to keep forests as forests and common birds common by helping landowners integrate the practices of timber and songbird habitat management. The forests of the Northeast, where the project was established, provide summer nesting habitat for the greatest diversity of bird species in the United States. The same forests support working woodlands and a vibrant forest products industry. Started in 2008, through a partnership between Audubon Vermont and the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, the project has grown to become a network of foresters, biologists, and forest landowners across Vermont and the Atlantic Flyway who are working together to make a positive difference for forests, birds, and land stewardship in the region.  

Audubon Vermont conservation biologist Steve Hagenbuch and Nancy Patch, a county forester with the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, (each shown in the photos here), will share the concepts, principles, and components of Foresters for the Birds along with the how the project got started, how it has expanded outside Vermont, and plans for the future.
