Interior Forest Initiative: Eastern Priority

Beyond the bounds of bird migration, the Eastern Priority Forest Initiative seeks to maintain a pattern of contiguous forest blocks along the entire Atlantic Flyway for breeding and wintering birds. Engaging landowners and foresters with bird-friendly forestry techniques, we give forest managers the tools they need to conserve birds while meeting their own unique goals for their land.
