Managing your Woods for Wildlife, March 29, 2016


Western Mass Woodlands for Wildlife:

Managing your woods for wildlife

Tuesday, March 29th  at 6PM

Notchview Reservation

83 Old Route 9


Free and open to all

The Western Mass Woodlands for Wildlife Partnership team is partnering with The Trustees to host an informational event for landowners who want to improve
wildlife habitat in their woodlands. Mass Audubon’s recently released State of the Birds report revealed startling data about declining bird species
in our state due to loss of habitat. Species such as the wood thrush, ruffed grouse and chestnut sided warbler need help!

Experts from Mass Audubon, the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Service Forestry Program, and the MA Forest Alliance will talk about declining
bird and wildlife populations in Massachusetts, forest management practices that can enhance wildlife habitat, and funding assistance for landowners
who want to improve wildlife habitat in their woods.

Refreshments will be served.

Pre-registration is requested. Call 625-9151 or email melissa@masswoodlands for more information,
directions, or to register.

The Western Massachusetts Woodlands for Wildlife Partnership program is a regional partnership between MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Mass
Audubon, The Massachusetts Woodlands Institute, the Massachusetts Forest Alliance, and USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service.
