POSTPONED UNTIL EARLY SPRING 2017
Learn about using timber harvesting to create young forest habitat for wildlife.
In partnership with the Northeast PA Audubon Society, the Northern Tier Hardwood Association (NTHA) is offering this follow-up workshop for forest landowners, loggers, and foresters interested in establishing young forest habitat for the Golden-winged Warbler. Attendees will learn how to use sound silvicultural practices and research-based Golden-winged Warbler Best Management Practices to create nesting habitat for this imperiled species.
The same habitat that benefits Golden-winged Warblers also provides habitat for other young forest dependent wildlife species such as: white-tailed deer, bobcat, ruffed grouse, woodcock, wild turkeys, and many other songbird species.
