Presentation summary: 
Sustainable forest stewardship can create and improve habitat for a variety of forest birds, many of which are experiencing population declines, such as Wood Thrushes. Learn how to manage your land to meet the needs of many birds and other wildlife, while balancing the types of habitat available in the surrounding landscape. This program will discuss important components of forest bird habitat, including forest age class, structure, and understory composition, and will show examples of logging jobs that help create quality habitat while promoting regeneration, health, and longevity. Resources available to landowners to better manage their woodlots and forests will also be discussed.
