Working Forests for Birding Field Day
September 23 @ 5:00 pm - September 24 @ 2:00 pm$10.00
Privately-owned working forests cover over 90 percent of Georgia, providing 22 million acres of forested landscape that support the state’s bird population. Although they are some of the most biologically diverse ecosystems for forest-dependent species, opportunities to access these privately-owned lands have been limited for the birding community.
The Georgia Forestry Foundation and Georgia Audubon will host this field day event to connect birding enthusiasts with working forest landowners across the state.
- Who should attend: Birders and bird habitat enthusiasts; forest landowners and managers interested in learning more about managing forests for bird habitat.
- What to expect: Attendees will engage in birding activities led by Georgia Audubon experts and a property tour led by forest management experts. You will learn about different forestland habitat types and how they benefit various bird species.
- Birding Access Program: GFF will announce the launch of its birding access permit program to connect private landowners with birders across the state and nation.
