Join Highstead, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Audubon Vermont, and the Northeast Bird Habitat Conservation Initiative for the upcoming Bird-friendly Forestry webinar series focused on best practices in habitat restoration and forestry management for birds in New England, with a focus on at-risk species.

Continuing Forestry Education Credits (CFEs) are pending for each webinar through the Society of American Foresters.
