Creating habitat for wildlife species in need - shrublands and young forests
Friday, 06/16/2017 (09:00 PM - 12:00 PM)

2017 NH Tree Farm Workshop Series Caring for Your Forest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Recent timber harvesting and habitat improvement projects on the Hemenway State Forest in Tamworth created several large shrub and young forest openings beneficial to many wildlife species. As our forests have grown and matured, these young, ephemeral habitats have declined and so has much of the wildlife that depend upon them. Learn about how forest openings can improve the diversity of our forests and create high quality habitats. Join us as we use mist nets to capture birds to learn about their habitat needs. Participants should bring binoculars for bird viewing.

 

Attend one, two, three, or all four of the workshop series.
