About The Event
The decline of young forest and early successional habitats throughout the Northeast US has been identified as a dire issue for decades. Wildlife that are highly dependent on diverse forest habitats in New York and New England have suffered severe population declines. Golden-winged warblers, ruffed grouse, American woodcock, snowshoe hare, whip-poor-will, and even moose are bellwethers of a much broader decline in forest habitat diversity. To bring grouse, woodcock, and dozens of other species back from the brink, we need to increase forest habitat diversity through forest management. Presented by Todd Waldron, Regional Forester with the Ruffed Grouse Society.
