Hosted by Maine Audubon, in partnership with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Maine Forest Service (MFS).

These workshops will focus on the proper installation and maintenance of road/stream crossing structures to prevent erosion and enhance water quality and fish passage. The workshops also include forest management strategies to benefit a variety of birds and other wildlife. 

Landowners (including woodlot and camp owners as well as lake and road association members), road construction contractors, loggers, foresters, and forestland managers will benefit from attending this free workshop. Others interested in habitat connectivity, stream restoration, fisheries management, and Forestry For Maine Birds are all encouraged to participate. Continuing education credits are available for licensed foresters.

Basic Agenda:
Registration at 9:30 a.m.
A classroom session at 10:00 a.m.
An outside “bring your own” brownbag lunch and discussion.

The workshop concludes at 2:30 p.m.
