About the Spring Wildlife Habitat Workshop Series

This series of field-based workshops is for landowners, conservation commission members, natural resources professionals, and anyone else interested in learning how to identify forest, field, and wetland wildlife habitats and approaches for maintaining or enhancing those habitats to benefit specific wildlife species.

Each workshop will occur entirely in the field. Workshop participants are encouraged to watch the recorded presentation Introduction to Wildlife Habitat Assessment and Management prior to attending any of these workshops; we will be applying the information discussed in that presentation during each workshop.

Workshop Dates, Locations & Descriptions

Workshop titles reflect the primary topics that will be covered during each workshop, but we will discuss a wide variety of topics pertinent to each property. Note: Workshops listed as (BIRD IDENTIFICATION) will include a specific focus on learning how to identify birds by sight & sound – so be sure to bring your binoculars and your favorite pocket field guide!
