Sugarbushes not only provide us with maple syrup, they also provide nesting habitat for a variety of songbirds. The Green Mountain Audubon Center’s sugarbush will serve as an outdoor classroom for learning the principles of bird-friendly sugarbush management. Learn about bird species that commonly nest in “the bush”, what their habitat needs are, and practical forest management approaches to integrating bird habitat with sap production. Opportunities for getting involved with the Bird-Friendly Maple Project will also be explored. This workshop is geared toward beginner and/or hobby maple producers with limited knowledge of sugarbush management.
Presented in partnership with the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation and the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association.
