Presentation Title

Songs, Saws, and Sustainability: Forestry for the Birds comes to Washington County, Oregon

Abstract

Migratory birds have been declining, in some cases rapidly, for the past 30 years due in part to loss of habitat and habitat fragmentation. Forestry for the Birds provides information connecting sustainable forestry management practices to the habitat needs and natural history of birds, creating an accessible way for private forest owners to “let forest forests function as forests and keep common birds common”. The program brings together foresters, landowners, academics, non-profits, and state and federal agencies to find management solutions that support bird populations and promote sustainable forestry on working lands. This program has been funded in Washington County by the Tualatin Soil and Watershed Council from 2019-2022. Here we outline the goals of the program, its methods, and how to get involved.
