Turn your yard into a habitat

Experts from Audubon New York, the Black Rock Forest Consortium, the Cornell Cooperative Extension and Hudson Highlands Land Trust will share best practices on Saturday, Nov. 5, on making your yard or forest into habitat for bird species whose survival is at risk. The Highlands have many natural features essential to Wood Thrush, Cerulean Warbler, Scarlet Tanger and many other birds.

The program will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hubbard Lodge in Cold Spring. Register at ny.audubon.org/forestworkshop or call Eric Lind at 845-265-2601. The cost is $35 and includes lunch and a forest habitat walk.
