More Volunteers Trained to Protect Warblers

Second Team Meets in the Western NC Mountains

Please welcome Audubon North Carolina conservation biologist Aimee Tomcho. As part of the Putting Working Lands to Work initiative, Aimee is engaging landowners across Western North Carolina to develop and restore habitat for the Golden-winged Warbler.

This spring, a new team of Audubon volunteers met at the Highlands Biological Station and in Macon and Jackson County. Six enthusiastic people came together with representatives from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and Natural Resources Conservation Service to learn about Golden-winged Warbler (GWWA) biology, habitat assessment and survey techniques.

They join previously-trained GWWA stewards in Yancey County working to help save NC’s population of GWWA. These volunteers will help in the success of Audubon’s work with private landowners who are managing their land for the benefit of the Golden-winged Warbler and other forest species.
