This webinar is part of the PA Forest Webinar Series , a collaboration of the PA Center for Private Forests and the Penn State Extension Forestry & Wildlife Team.
Ron Rohrbaugh, Director of Conservation Science and Forest Programs with Audubon Pennsylvania, will discuss the unique “power” of birds as barometers of forest health and in driving landscape-scale forest management through their complex breeding cycles and high mobility. He will cover the population status of forest birds, the importance of Pennsylvania’s forests in supporting those species, and the forest conditions needed to sustain healthy bird populations. In addition, the presentation will focus on how to use common forest management practices in woodlots and large forest tracts to improve habitat for forest birds, while also meeting goals related to forest products and recreation.
The webinar has been approved for 1.0 Society of American Foresters CFE Credit, Category 1-CF. It has also been approved for 1 hour (.25 years) of CE credit with Pennsylvania SFI.
