Join us and wildlife biologist Nicole Ruggiero from the Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District and forester Scott Hayes (retired) from Oregon Department of Forestry who will help demonstrate the Forestry for the Birds Western Oregon Guide and identify birds and habitat preferences. 

This Guide was developed to assist woodland caretakers including landowners, loggers, foresters, natural resource managers, or practitioners, to identify, assess, and support a healthy forest with birds in mind. We will review the guide while walking through various habitats and forest stages. Learn more about the focal birds within the Guide, bird habitat preferences, identifying understory plants, and forest structure and variability that make appealing habitat for different bird species.  

We look forward to meeting you, hearing about your management goals and efforts, wildlife, and bird observations! Please bring your stories, curiosity, and binoculars if you have them. We will have coffee and cake for the early bird!
