Chautauqua Institution's Bird, Tree & Garden Club visits First Forest
This past Saturday, the Chautauqua Bird, Tree & Garden Club came out to FSF's First Forest property in NY to explore the intersection between thoughtful forestry and bird diversity.
The National Aviary's Steve Latta, PhD led the woods walk with insights from his research on FSF properties this summer, while our own Troy Firth and Guy Dunkle explained the art and science of ecological forestry.
We had a great time with the Club and look forward to exploring with them again soon!

It was fantastic to have such an engaged crowd, all members of the Chautauqua Bird, Tree, and Garden Club, before their summer season ends and they disperse around the country!
