Managing for Shrubland and Young Forest Wildlife: Promoting plant and wildlife diversity and helping struggling species
Join Andrea Petrullo, consulting biologist on the CT DEEP and Wildlife Management Institute’s Young Forest Program, in discussing the history of early successional habitat in Connecticut. Also discussed will be the state of shrubland/young forest habitat today, and the many declining species that rely on these habitat types. We’ll also be taking a hike to look at this habitat at Goodwin!
This event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
