Habitat Assessment Volunteer Training
Educational Webinar Series for Volunteers and Landowners of the Lyme Forest Block
Are you a champion for birds and other wildlife and love to learn? You are invited to participate in these webinars.
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 will be geared for our volunteers. However, we welcome Lyme Forest Block landowners to join the sessions to build their forest habitat knowledge.
