Audubon New York has invited Tug Hill and Adirondack forest landowners to register for an upcoming free workshop to learn how to manage their properties to maximize benefits for birds and other wildlife, especially the American Woodcock, a species of conservation need in New York State.
By working with private landowners and organizational partners, Audubon New York aims to restore and maintain critical habitat for American Woodcock and other wildlife. The landowner workshop scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 6 to 8 pm, at the Boonville Municipal Building’s Town Conference Room, 13149 State Route 12, Boonville, will offer participants the chance to learn strategies and techniques for maintaining high-quality habitat on their land to support the needs of birds and other wildlife.
The workshop brings landowners together with experts on birds and other wildlife, and forest habitat management. Participating landowners will hear from a series of presenters about birds and other wildlife they can attract through proper habitat management, and where they can find the resources, tools, and potential partners to help them plan for managing habitat to benefit wildlife on their property. Presentations will be made by Audubon New York and NYS-DEC.
The workshop is free to attend but registration is required. Registration deadline is Monday, June 19. To register, contact Andy Hinickle at firstname.lastname@example.org or (607) 254-2487.
