Maximizing Wildlife, Water, & Productivity in Peatland Forests

  • Use a combination of wildlife, vegetation, and hydrology (water) measurements to determine the impacts of logging on peatland forests.
  • Conduct bird surveys and track the movements of juvenile Boreal Chickadees and Connecticut Warblers to study habitat selection.
  • Combine all of this data to further inform land management practices for peatland forests.
