Bird Identification, Ecology & Habitat Management at Stone Fence Farm
Saturday, June 4,
5:30 am to 10:45 am
- This event has passed.
Join Phil Brown, Matt Tarr, and others for a morning of birding and learning at Stone Fence Farm, a property owned and managed for a diversity of native species by professional foresters Jeremy Turner and Laura French. Through slow walking tours in a variety of field, forest, and wetland habitats, we’ll learn:
- tips for identifying the birds we encounter by sight and sound;
- the ecology and habitat needs of those species;
- how past timber and field management have created habitat opportunities for birds; and
- how the forests, fields, and wetlands we see can be managed to enhance habitat for birds and other wildlife.
In between walks, we’ll take a break to enjoy wood-fired fruit pies (provided by Jeremy and Laura) and shade-grown coffee (provided by Troubardour Coffee). Beginning birders welcome!
10:45 a.m. at Stone Fence Farm in Unity. Bring binoculars and your favorite field guide to birds, and come prepared for biting insects.
Cost: $20/person. Continuing education credits for foresters are available.
Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, please contact Phil.
Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, UNH Cooperative Extension, Meadowsend Consulting Company, and Troubardour Coffee.
