Steve Hagenbuch to Present "Bird Conservation in the Working Landscape" at Sterling College

16 Sterling Drive
Craftsbury Common, VT

 

More than half of America’s landscape is a working landscape. Farms cover more than one billion acres of the United States; forests, many of which are managed for timber, account for an additional 747 million acres.

However, says Audubon Vermont’s Steve Hagenbuch, working lands represent one of the best hopes for conservation. Hagenbuch will be presenting “Bird Conservation in the Working Landscape” at Common House on the Sterling College campus on Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m.

In this presentation, Hagenbuch will introduce several  bird species that can benefit from an actively managed landscape and present a few different ways to integrate bird habitat with  agricultural and forestry management.

Hagenbuch is a Conservation Biologist for Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Initiative. In this position, he works with private landowners, municipalities, foresters, and land managers to promote management activities that will enhance the habitat value of forestland for priority bird species.

This talk is free and open to the public.
