Participants will pair traditional forest management techniques with habitat assessment for Maine’s migratory forest songbirds and discuss possible changes to the land to increase biodiversity and age-class structure. Forestry for Maine Birds is geared toward foresters, loggers, land owners, land trust folks, and anyone interested in learning about managing woodlands for species biodiversity.

Bottomland Hardwoods Learning Exchange

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 12:30 to Friday, November 9, 2018 - 17:00

Register by October 31!

Meeting location: Brunswick, Georgia.

Please share the event flyer!

Tentative agenda is available now.

This field-based learning exchange will bring together experts from the Atlantic Coastal Plain and lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley to compare these two geographies based on social, ecological, and economic factors. An emphasis will be placed on the connection between forestry and hydrology, and how responsible forest management can play an integral role in conserving the whole system on a watershed-level. Through this event we hope to improve the management and conservation of bottomland forests and illustrate opportunities to meet diverse social values.
