For the past year, Dan Lambert of High Branch Conservation Services and Len Reitsma of Plymouth State University have been working with foresters, wildlife biologists, and environmental biology students to develop management guidelines for several wildlife species in decline. Join Dan, Len, and forestry and wildlife specialists from UNH Cooperative Extension to hear results from this effort during this workshop that will involve observation and discussion of forestry practices that enhance habitat quality for these Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) and many other wildlife species. Participants will also have the opportunity to hold a migrant bird species in their hand while discussing details about their habitat needs. This workshop will take place entirely in the field. Come prepared. Lunch will be provided as part of the cost of the workshop.
