The red-cockaded woodpecker has been the focus of conservation efforts for many years. Management of their nesting sites is extremely important for reproduction and longevity. In this webinar, we will learn about the behavior, history, and management strategies to bring endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers back to the urban forest. Mark Pavlosky Jr., of MPJ Wildlife Consulting LLC will talk about the successful project at Hitchcock Woods, one of the largest urban forests in the United States (South Carolina).
Webinars are moderated by Dr. Tim Davis, UGA Extension and Vicky Bertagnolli, Clemson Extension, and coordinated by Dani Carroll, Alabama Extension. The link to the recorded event is here: https://youtu.be/vmW_ok4PH_w
