Landowners interested in improving the habitat for wildlife on their property can go to a workshop on the subject at the Great Swamp Conservancy in central New York this weekend.
The event in Canastota is hosted by Audubon New York, the Great Swamp Conservancy, Ruffed Grouse Society and Department of Environmental Conservation.
The event will educate landowners on the wildlife, in particular birds, commonly found in mixed agricultural and forested landscapes, and how to encourage wildlife to use their property. It will also discuss the resources, tools and potential partners available to help create habitat on their land.
The DEC Landowner Incentive Program has been partnering with landowners to conserve grassland bird habitat since 2006.
Registration is required by emailing or calling Jillian Liner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607-254-2437 by Friday.
