If you're a landowner considering the removal of invasive species and wonder how this will impact nesting birds, this free workshop is for you. Habitat and wildlife experts from Portland Audubon, West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will describe many of the native bird species that you may find nesting on your land, and discuss the best timing for removal of invasive plants or other habitat restoration work in order to avoid harming birds during critical nesting periods.
The workshop will offer steps you can take to replace habitat after invasives removal, and we'll spend time outdoors investigating on-site examples of habitat restoration and replacement.
Who should attend? The workshop is designed for people with more than 2 acres of land
