Registration for Mass Audubon’s 23rd Annual Birders Meeting is now open with an agenda that promises to be informative and entertaining. The meeting will take place Saturday, March 7 at Bentley University in Waltham, MA.
The theme of the event, Managing for Birds: Balancing the Needs of Wildlife will concentrate on the stewardship needs of habitats and species that were identified in the Massachusetts State of the Birds 2013 report as particularly requiring active management to effectively sustain them in Massachusetts.
Management issues discussed will range from entire ecosystems needing special stewardship, to habitats as small as suburban backyards. Author and artist Julie Zickefoose will keynote the meeting, and will be joined by a number of other habitat management specialists. The day also includes visits from many artists and vendors, as well as lunch and a good opportunity to connect with other birders from around the state.
