Stewardship for Birds in Aquatic & Riparian Habitats

Speakers: Coauthors of Land Stewardship for Birds – Jan Wrede: Environmental Educator and Writer; Rufus Stephens: Wildlife Biologist

Riparian corridors have the greatest diversity of bird species and the greatest abundance of individual birds compared to most other habitat types. Also, riparian birds are an excellent indicator of riparian and aquatic ecosystem health, and stewardship for birds along riparian corridors increases the quality of the entire ecosystem. This webinar will discuss breeding and migratory bird species that live in different levels of the riparian and aquatic habitats and have different survival needs. It will include the serious environmental problems these birds face as well as their causes and the solutions land stewards can provide.

The speaker are coauthors of “Land Stewardship for Birds”
