Woods, Wildlife, & Warblers Workshops with Sue Morse: From Butterflies to Birds to Bears

See and hear about a variety of topics, including bear biology and ecology, as well as the positive outcome of various forest management practices as they stimulate more productive and diversified food and cover resources for the benefit of all wildlife, from butterflies and birds to bears.
We are inviting forest landowners, loggers, and consulting foresters. We will experience in the field a variety of wildlife detection and habitat assessment techniques, with an emphasis on discovering how bears feed and communicate within the forest community. Program is free; pre-registration is required. Bring a bag lunch and dress appropriately for the weather. Attendance is limited to 25 for each workshop so don’t delay!


Each workshop is 8-4pm. Directions on flyers below.
