Creating a habitat for the golden-winged warbler  

6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Sussex County Library
125 Morris Turnpike A workshop for owners of forestland in northwestern New Jersey will be held at the Sussex County Main Library in Frankford to outline programs by the U.S. Department of Agriculture designed to create habitat for endangered species. Of particular concern is the golden-winged warbler, a small migratory bird that breeds in specific habitat and has seen its population decline by 66 percent since the 1960s, according to the department. A species of concern to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which maintains the national threatened and endangered species lists, the warbler is at the center of other programs and what is known as the Young Forest Initiative. The Natural Resources Conservation Service will outline the technical and financial assistance available to owners of forests. More information here
