Western Mass Woodlands for Wildlife:

Managing your woods for wildlife

Thursday, February 4th, 2016


Meekins Library

2 Williams Street, Williamsburg

Free and open to all

The Western Mass Woodlands for Wildlife Partnership team is hosting 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.

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.

The Massachusetts Woodlands Institute is a non-profit organization that encourages and assists landowners in responsibly managing their woodlands,
The Institute is a subsidiary of the Franklin Land Trust, and is based in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
