"If you build it, they will come - Fun wildlife habitat enhancements" Webinar

Washington State University Extension Forestry is offering Forest Stewardship Webinars.  They offer periodic live webinars on various forest stewardship topics. The webinars are free, but pre-registration is required. Each webinar is offered twice: one from 12:05-12:55 pm, and again from 7:05-7:55 pm.

Due to increased security, you must have your own Zoom account to participate. You can easily create a free Zoom account if you do not already have one. Important: you must have your Zoom account set up and be registered for the webinar at least two hours before the webinar start time.

If you are interested in a webinar but will be unable to attend, please register anyway so that you can receive a link to the recording.


If you build it, they will come – Fun wildlife habitat enhancements

The basic habitat needs of wildlife, food, water, and cover, are sometimes incompletely provided in our forests. Limiting factors such as availability of cavities for nesting or roosting cover can be addressed by providing strategic and appropriate structures created, managed, and maintained by landowners. Learn about boxes, piles, creating wildlife trees, water sources, and other techniques in this fun and free ranging webinar!
Instructor: Ken Bevis, Landowner Assistance Biologist, Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

This webinar is approved for one teacher clock hour.  If you are a K-12 educator who would like clock hours, please contact Brendan Whyte, at brendan.whyte@wsu.edu, during or after the webinar. You must attend the webinar live to receive clock hour credits.

This webinar is approved for one SAF CFE (category 1).
