Come learn about enhancing wildlife habitat for songbirds, wild turkeys, and beneficial insects. DEEP wildlife biologist Peter Picone will share with you his knowledge and insights on creating/improving/enhancing wildlife habitat in your surroundings. You will learn about Connecticut’s valuable native plants and how they can be used to make a better environment. Mr. Picone will give a powerpoint presentation and illustrate the inextricable link between plants and animals.
Audubon Connecticut has launched a project in an Important Bird Area (IBA) called the “Lyme Forest Block” which spans forested habitat in 6 towns in southeastern CT. The goal of the project is to engage landowners in the IBA and teach them about forest birds and how to better manage their woodlands for these birds, especially Wood Thrush and Cerulean Warbler. We invite the community to participate in a series of bird walks, presentations, workshops, and work days in each of the 6 towns over the next year with the hope that landowners will attend the events and learn about birds and habitat management through them.
