February 19, 2020 Meeting -- Landscape-Scale Bird Conservation

Please Join us in the Large Group Presentation Classroom at Wellsboro High School on February 19 for a program on "landscape scale" bird consevation by Dr Jeffery Larkin. We will post signs with directions to the room; same place as for the puffin talk last year. Business meeting starts at 6:00 and the program at 7:00.

Title: "Importance of landscape-scale bird conservation across private and public forest lands in Pennsylvania" by Dr. Jeffrey Larkin.

Description: Several studies have recently examined nesting and post-fledging habitat selection of many at-risk, forest-dependent songbirds. Collectively, this research provides a substantial body of evidence that suggests forest bird conservation is intimately tied to landscape context and configuration and within-stand structural complexity, regardless of nesting guild. As such, strategically increasing forest age class diversity has become an important focus of many forest-bird conservation efforts. This presentation will provide examples of successes and insight as to how a well-funded and well-organized partnership can overcome the many constraints that can often inhibit large-scale conservation implementation. The talk will be geared toward a diverse audience from private landowners, birders, and conservation organizations.
