Audubon New York has begun a forest management project at Rheinstrom Hill that will use best management practices to restore the sanctuary to a balance of forest types to improve conditions for birds and other at-risk wildlife. The main goal of the outreach effort is to provide training to private forest landowners and other audiences, with the goal of applying these land management techniques beyond the demonstration project and improve forest health across a larger landscape throughout Columbia County and beyond.

Suzanne Treyger, Audubon NY Forest Program Manager, will lead a talk about the Forest Stewardship Plan and management goals for this property. Two deer exclosure sites, established in 2015 and 2019, will provide dramatic visual evidence of the impact of deer on forest regeneration. Suzanne will discuss the relationship with a local hunting club and their use of DMAP (Deer Management Assistance Program) permits to control deer numbers. Suzanne will also discuss Audubon's Harvest For Habitat program which enables bird habitat improvements through active forest management.

This program is free of charge and open to the public.
