Did you know that restoring native habitat can help our wildlife in Connecticut? Join us as Pam Hine, Senior Lecturer in Botany at Connecticut College,  shares her knowledge and insight on restoring ecosystems by removing harmful invasive species and allowing the natural habitat to return.

This free event is sponsored by Audubon Connecticut and is part of the Workshop Series offered by the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project—an initiative launched by Audubon Connecticut, in partnership with the Eightmile River Wild and Scenic Coordinating Committee, The Nature Conservancy, local land trusts, and municipalities.

Did you know that Connecticut's woodlands are home to some of the highest concentration of bird species breeding in the continental United States? In 2016, the Lyme Forest Block was recognized by National Audubon Society and the state of Connecticut as an Important Bird Area. Unfortunately, many birds are experiencing long-term population declines in the area, but local landowners and residents can learn how to help halt these declines.

More About the Project: The Lyme Forest Block Important Bird Area (IBA) is a woodland habitat in six towns in southeastern Connecticut (East Haddam, Colchester, Lyme, Old Lyme, East Lyme, and Salem). The goal of the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project is to engage landowners in the IBA and teach them about forest birds and bird-friendly woodland management (especially for Wood Thrush and Cerulean Warbler).

We invite the community to participate in a series of bird walks, presentations, workshops, and work days in each of the six towns over the next year with the hope that landowners will attend the events and gain useful knowledge about birds and habitat management. To learn more and view the project event list, visit the Lyme Forest Conservation Project web page.
