Join us for the next conversation in the Knowing Your Landscape series on Managing for Wildlife Habitat, Tuesday March 7 at 7pm at Sheep Hill or remotely.
We will be joined by MassWildlife habitat biologist, Marianne Piche, and BioMap Outreach Specialists, Alec Kaisand and Sarah Wasserman, who will discuss the features of the newly-enhanced BioMap, species of greatest conservation concern in the Berkshires and resources available to private landowners for planning and funding habitat management.
BioMap, developed by the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) and The Nature Conservancy in Massachusetts, is an interactive map and website that identifies critical land and waterways throughout Massachusetts most in need of conservation. BioMap’s comprehensive synthesis of biodiversity data continues to guide the strategic protection and stewardship of the most critical habitats for rare species, fish, and other wildlife, and identifies intact and climate resilient ecosystems and landscapes. BioMap now includes regional connectivity data, statewide conservation priorities, resources unique to each municipality for making informed local decisions, and a Habitat Restoration Resource Center that provides recommendations and resources for stewardship.
Registration appreciated for in person attendance but required for remote participation. Remote link will be sent out to all registrants on Monday, March 6.

Knowing Your Landscape is a free, monthly series of talks and workshops designed to answer questions you might have about land stewardship, anticipate your concerns, and provide information and resources to landowners and land stewards. The series is jointly sponsored by our Talks on the Hill and the Working Lands/Working Hand programs. Participants in the series (and you may attend any or all) will learn about:
- the natural and productive components of the rural landscape,
- policies and regulations applicable to land conservation and management,
- land and natural resource management practices to keep things growing, and
- programs that support land stewardship by private landowners.
Bookings are closed for this event.
