Foresters for the Birds is an innovative project that works to keep forests as forests and common birds common by helping landowners integrate the practices of timber and songbird habitat management. The forests of the Northeast, where the project was established by our partners, provide summer nesting habitat for the greatest diversity of bird species in the United States. The same forests support working woodlands and a vibrant forest products industry. Learn more about the program and explore possibilities to expand it to more regions, on this webinar.
