Come learn from amphibian experts about the role forests play in providing habitat for amphibians. These authors just released a new publication for landowners, Wildlife in Managed Forests: Forest Amphibians. They will discuss microhabitats, riparian buffers, and connectivity. Also summarize current research on the interaction of amphibians and forest management, along with recommendations for habitat management.
This class covers the principles of salmonid biology (including life cycles, ecological needs at various life stages, etc.) and introduces the audience to freshwater habitat components that are key to the survival of native species of freshwater fish, with particular emphasis on salmonids and lamprey. The roles of riparian vegetation on fish habitat creation are explored and management options for riparian forests are discussed.
The Oregon Master Naturalist Program is for people interested in Oregon’s natural history and natural resources management who want to dedicate their time as volunteers. Take courses online and on-location in Oregon’s beautiful outdoors.
