Join Maine Woodland Owners on Thursday, May 18th from 4:30pm – 6:00pm, for a woodlot management tour at its Wiesendanger Wildlife Protection Area on Case Rd. in Winthrop. Joe Roy, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) Private Lands Wildlife Biologist and Andy Shultz, retired Maine Forest Service (MFS) Landowner Outreach Forester will lead this program which will focus on helping woodland owners understand forestry techniques that promote wildlife of all types.
The program will be based on the Forestry for Wildlife series published in the Maine Woodland Owners publication Maine Woodlands, and will discuss things like the role of dead wood and tree snags in a woodlot, creating openings to promote forest undergrowth, and promoting native plant species to support important pollinators. For more information, contact Andy Shultz, Maine Woodland Owners Two Rivers Chapter Leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (207) 242-8845.
