Managing Private Wetlands for Birds

September 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm MDT


Restoration on Private Lands – Implementation, Biological Control Options, and Restoring for Birds

Join us on September 22nd from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM MDT for part two of this webinar series with extended Q&A geared towards restoration on private lands.

Presentations include:
1) Experiential Tips from the Field – Working Successfully with Private Land Owners – Shelly Simmons, Purgatoire Watershed Weed Management Collaborative
2) Managing Private Wetlands for Birds – Kelsea Holloway, Bird Conservancy/Natural Resource Conservation Service
3) Biological Control in Colorado – Nina Louden, USDA Palisade Insectary: The CDA Insectary, located in Palisade Colorado, provides and monitors biological controls on public and private lands for controlling further spread of invasive non-native pest species such as tamarisk, field bindweed, and Canada thistle. Our biocontrols include host-specific insects, mites, and even a fungus that damage invasive weeds throughout the state. Successful biocontrol implementation is a long-term solution for the management of invasive species when other tactics including mechanical removal or pesticide application have too steep an economic or environmental cost.
Each presentation will be 20 minutes, followed by up to an hour of interactive Q&A.

Champions for Grasslands

| International Programs, Land Stewardship, Partners, Science, Stewardship | No Comments

The cultural heritage of those that tend the land and call it home—from ranchers to Indigenous Peoples to ejidos—is closely tied to the fate of grasslands. Rural communities and economies depend on healthy grasslands and the services they provide which include aquifer recharge, productive rangelands, outdoor recreation and more. Despite their importance, the plight of grasslands has been largely overlooked, but a new initiative has launched which aims to chart a better future for this precious resource.

Return of the Aplomado Falcon?

| International Programs, Land Stewardship, Monitoring Programs, Science | No Comments

The Chihuahuan Desert population of Northern Aplomado Falcon shrunk dramatically a century ago and was lost from the southwestern U.S. A tiny population survived in Mexico, but its continued survival is tenuous due to habitat loss and other factors. A tri-national partnership is monitoring this population’s breeding success and conducting a demographic study that includes satellite telemetry of juvenile falcons. What we are learning is guiding conservation and helping gain support from private landowners on the ground. The recent appearance of a young male falcon in New Mexico fosters hope that the Northern Aplomado Falcon might even be able to someday recolonize the Southwestern U.S.

Fire, Forests and Birds

| IMBCR, Land Stewardship, Science | No Comments

Forest management has evolved rapidly over the last two decades as land managers strive to find a balance between wildlife habitat needs, resource utilization, fire mitigation, and resilience to climate change. Using birds as indicators, Bird Conservancy and partners explored the impacts of the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program and how modern forest management approaches are shaping avian biodiversity in treated landscapes.

Happy Birthday to the Bird Banding Lab!

| Education, Science | No Comments

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Bird Banding Laboratory, the federal agency responsible for overseeing all bird banding efforts in the United States and Canada. Here we’ll take a look at why banding is such a powerful tool for research while highlighting a few of our projects that put banding to use. With the fall banding season rapidly approaching, its a good time to reexamine what makes a bird in the hand so valuable.
