Joshua Rittenhouse

Forest Program Associate

Joshua’s work in the forest program focuses on private-lands outreach and education. He is largely concentrated on a landscape-level approach to forest management in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Recent projects focus on encouraging land trusts in Pennsylvania to utilize bird-friendly forest management. Prior to Audubon, Joshua worked for the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Research Institute managing forestry projects designed to increase avian habitat. Joshua earned his master’s degree at The Pennsylvania State University studying juvenile-tree populations in the understory of mixed-oak forests.

Audubon Maryland-DC and Audubon Pennsylvania have joined forces to become Audubon Mid-Atlantic.
