In an effort to optimize forest habitat for birds and other wildlife, Audubon Connecticut and partners are offering an exciting opportunity for landowners in the Lyme Forest Block—a chance to participate in a free forest bird habitat assessment, conducted by Audubon trained volunteers.

These sessions are geared for our volunteers. However, we welcome Lyme Forest Block landowners to watch the sessions to build their forest habitat knowledge.
