February 13, 2018, Making Woods Bird-Friendly – free workshop of interest at NRWA

Birds of the Massachusetts Woodlands

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main Street (Rt. 119), Groton, MA

Are your woods bird-friendly? The forests of New England are vital for the survival and reproduction of many birds, such as the Chestnut-sided Warbler and Wood Thrush. Yet numerous forest birds have undergone a drastic decline in numbers. These declines can be attributed in part to the current habitat conditions found in our forests. Creating and maintaining hospitable habitat will be fundamental to sustaining our forest birds, and doing so requires engagement and action. How can you accomplish your land management goals, while benefiting forest songbirds?

Please join Mass Audubon, MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, and NRWA for this free public workshop on bird habitat in Massachusetts. You will leave the workshop more familiar with species that depend on the Massachusetts woods for breeding habitat, and better able to assess how your own management goals can help these birds flourish.

Please RSVP by February 12th to Michael Downey by emailing Michael, or by calling 413-212-3039.
