Join Maine Audubon, the Maine Forest Service and the Forest Stewards Guild for an afternoon of outdoor exploration and forest assessment at LEA’s Maine Lake Science Center, and the Highland Research Forest in Bridgton.

Forestry for Maine Birds is geared toward foresters, loggers, land owners, land trust folks, and anyone interested in learning about managing woodlands for species biodiversity. This workshop is FREE but space is limited, please register with alanna@leamaine.org. ¬†We will meet at the Center at 11:45 and the workshop will begin at 12 pm; please bring a lunch and water and be prepared to be outside.
