WOODLAND OWNER WEBINAR: FORESTRY FOR BATS
Time & Location
About the Event
Bats play a vital role in the health of our watershed. They pollinate plants and eat insects that could harm crops or humans, including the pesky mosquito. They even help reduce the use of pesticides on crops. But bat populations are seeing a rapid decline due to habitat loss and white-nose syndrome. Woodland owners in Minnesota and Wisconsin can play a vital role in conserving bat populations, working in partnership with state and local agencies.
In our next Woodland Owner Webinar, Sarah Herrick (Conservation Biologist for the Bureau of Natural Heritage Conservation) will discuss bat-friendly silviculture practices and what the Wisconsin DNR is doing to help our bat populations. We’ll also hear from Rich P. Courtemanche (Land Commissioner at Aitkin County Land Department in Minnesota) about their Habitat Conservation Program for the Northern Long Eared Bat and the Little Brown Bat.
