PA Forests Web Seminar - Wild Turkey Biology and Management

The Penn State Extension, PA Forests Web Seminar Center is pleased to have Mary Jo Casalena, Wild Turkey Biologist, PA Game Commission, Bureau of Wildlife Management, presenting a webinar on wild turkey biology and habitat management on Tuesday, January 10th at noon and again at 7 p.m.  Each webinar lasts approximately one hour.

Her talk will cover a turkey's life cycle from egg-stage to adulthood, as well as how habitat requirements of wild turkeys vary with the seasons.  This webinar will also include information on managing openings in forested landscapes and the types of plantings suitable for wild turkeys.  Each webinar is approved for 1.0 SAF CFE credit, Category 2 and 1 Pennsylvania SFI® CE.

Each session is recorded and loaded onto the PA Forests Web Seminar Center along with a copy of the presentation and any handout materials.  So, if you are unable to participate in the "live" session, a recording of it will be available for you to view at your convenience.  Of course, none of the interactive elements will be available when watching the recording.

To participate in the live seminars you must register and have a "Friend of Penn State" user ID.  The "Register Now" page on the website will walk you through this process.  Participation in the web seminar does not require any special software.  To view live and previously recorded seminars all you need is a high-speed Internet connection and sound.

Here are a couple of upcoming webinars provided by Penn State Natural Resources Extension.
