Conference Description: (4.5 CEUs)
Tree Care for Birds is hosting an online workshop on the Wildlife Best Management Practices. Arborists have a unique connection with nature and wildlife in the urban forest. This workshop will focus on the best practices to act responsibly around wildlife and to navigate wildlife laws in Arizona, California, Nevada and Hawaii. The workshop will cover topics like: laws regulating wildlife, when and where are you most likely to encounter nesting birds, practices to minimize impacts to nesting birds during tree care, and managing wildlife habitat through urban forestry. We are offering this workshop across three weeks, and we will have different sessions for the different states.
Participants should plan to attend a webinar each week, take a quiz after each session and complete at least one homework assignment. If you don’t work in a western state, you are welcome to join us anyways. Some of the information will be broadly applicable to different areas.
