Conservation Partners present FREE forum on Natural Landscaping

On Tuesday, August 22nd at 7 pm in the Park Street Complex in Honesdale, Ed Perry from the National Wildlife Federation will present a seminar on Neighborly Natural Landscaping: How to decrease mowing and increase pollinators and birds. This workshop will focus on ways each of us can reduce the population decline of bird species and pollinators right in our own backyards. Topics will include a discussion of what to plant, where to plant and where to get your plants, how to start a meadow, and how all this benefits our waterways.

Sarah Hall-Bagdonas, president of the Northeast PA Audubon Society will also present on native versus invasive species for this area. Each attendee will also receive a free “Seeds Ball”. This event is being sponsored by local Wayne/Pike County partners in conservation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA, Audubon Society, Wayne Conservation District, and Delaware Highlands Conservancy with the National Wildlife Federation.

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT:

The alarming decline of native pollinators has been well documented, but what is less well known, is the decline and potential loss of numerous bird species.  A recent National Audubon Society report states: Our model predicts that 314 North American bird species are seriously threatened by climate change by the end of this century.  

Since our changing climate is already affecting birds and pollinators, anything done to reduce carbon pollution will benefit those species.  For example, running a lawn mower for one hour emits the same amount of carbon pollution as driving a car for one hundred miles, so reduced mowing will not only help rein in carbon pollution, but also help our native birds and pollinators that are already feeling the heat.

WHEN: Tuesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm

WHERE:  Park Street Complex, 648 Park Street in Honesdale, near Wayne Memorial Hospital

SPEAKERS:  Ed Perry, National Wildlife Federation and Sarah Hall Bagdonas – Northeast Audubon Society

PRESENTED BY:  The National Wildlife Federation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA Audubon Society, Delaware Highlands Conservancy and the Wayne Conservation District.

ESTABLISHING WILDLIFE HABITAT WORKSHOP OFFERED ON SAT., JUNE 17th

Join us for a workshop focused on using timber harvesting to establish wildlife habitat, particularly for the Golden-winged Warbler.

NTHA is proud to bring you this important training geared toward forest landowners, loggers, and foresters. In partnership with the Northeast PA Audubon Society and NRCS, the Northern Tier Hardwood Association is offering this follow-up workshop for those 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. We will spend the morning out in the field looking at an ongoing project designed to establish this critical habitat.

It is important to note that this workshop 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.

Cost – $10 for NTHA Members, $15 for non-members, lunch included. This workshop counts for 4 hours (1 year) of PA SFI® Continuing Education (C.E.) credit.

Please visit the NTHA website, nthardwoods.org for more information and to register online. RSVP required. Registration preferred by Friday, June 9th.
