2018 Workshop: Timber Sale Design from a Wildlife Habitat Perspective

2017 harvest CFC

A well planned timber harvest can improve wildlife habitat. But not all harvests are created equal. With both classroom and field activities, we will review the basic needs of wildlife species, then look at timber sale design through the eyes of a wildlife manager. The workshops will focus on practical and operational issues. Registration is open to natural resource managers and logging contractors (who should register through MLEP). Instructors include both wildlife managers and foresters and the workshops are designed for an open exchange on the tradeoffs that go into planning and implementing a timber sale. 

The workshops are offered by SFEC and the Minnesota Logger Education Program. We are grateful for the contributions of staff from the Minnesota DNR Divisions of Fish & Wildlife and Forestry as well as other organizations, public and private.
