Learn how to Manage Landscapes for Birds

 
September 16, 2010

 

PORTLAND, Ore.—Landscapers, park managers, road maintenance crews, soil and water conservation district staff, watershed managers, private landowners and other land managers are invited to a workshop on Oct. 15, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Oregon Zoo. The workshop, Managing Land with Minimal Impact to Birds, is for those who maintain landscaping or restore habitats by mowing, trimming trees or removing invasive species.

The workshop will cover how declining bird species in the Willamette Valley are affected by land management practices and how timing and best practices can be altered to minimize impacts. See the agenda and register online at the Oregon Zoo website now. The cost of $31 covers breakfast, lunch and hors d’oeuvres.

Registration information is linked from the front page of the Oregon Zoo website or by following this link, http://www.oregonzoo.org/Conservation/songbird/index.htm

The workshop is presented by the Oregon Zoo, City of Portland Environmental Services, Portland Audubon, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, US Forest Service, Metro Science and Stewardship, the Bureau of Land Management and Oregon State Parks.

Restoration actions and recommendations are consistent with Oregon Conservation Strategy priorities.
