    2. Topic: “Forestry for the Birds in the Pacific Northwest”.
    Speaker: Maura Olivos

    The Forestry for the Birds program provides foresters and landowners the tools and benefits of managing forests with bird habitat in mind. Essentially, the program lets birds tell the story about how forests can benefit from thoughtful management, engaging woodland owners to take steps to further support forest health on their property. This presentation will give a little background of the Forestry for the Birds program across the country and the new guide in development, soon to be released for Western Oregon.

    About Jackson Bottom: 
    Located minutes south of downtown Hillsboro, Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve’s 635 acres are a quiet sanctuary for both people and wildlife. Over 211 species of birds are sighted annually at Jackson Bottom, including Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, and thousands of Tundra Swans and Northern Pintails, making Jackson Bottom a haven for bird watchers. The Preserve is home to deer, otters, beavers, and thousands of other species. Wetlands Nature Center includes an exhibit hall filled with interactive exhibits on wetlands and natural history, and the only bald eagle nest on display in the continental United States.

    Looking forward to a good time with friends, food, and a lively discussion with our presentation.
