March 30 - Wildlife Research and Habitat Management of Fields with Jeff Littleton of Moosewood Ecological LLC. A newly created field provides great potential for improving wildlife habitat using thoughtful land management and wildlife monitoring. Jeff has worked at Woodland Views in Roxbury to increase
diversity by supporting all wildlife. Much of this work has been completed thanks in part to the Environmental Quality Incentive Program and Conservation Stewardship Program administered by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. It lends credence to the old adage "Build
it, and they will come." This project has spanned several years. Come hear what Jeff has discovered.
