MAINE, Waldo County SWCD – Wild bird species of Maine are currently facing many stresses that are causing their populations to decline. Many migratory birds are facing habitat loss in winter habitats and along their migratory routes.

One thing humans can do for birds is assure that they can find suitable places in our Maine woodlands to nest and raise young. What are the things that can be done to make woodlands suitable for a wide variety of birds to thrive? Waldo County Soil and Water Conservation District, Maine Audubon and the Maine Forest Service are offering a free outdoor workshop on Forestry for Maine Birds, on Thursday, May 23 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., at the Head of Tide Preserve in Belfast.

MAINE, St. John Valley SWCD – The Friends of Cross Lake association will coordinate a survey of Cross Lake’s watershed in partnership with the St. John Valley Soil and Water Conservation District, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Maine Forest Service and Department of Environmental Protection.

The partners undertaking the survey want to keep soil and nutrients on the land to improve soil health, instead of exporting them to the water, where they can do harm. Volunteers and UMFK faculty and students will provide additional assistance.
