Wildlife Habitat Web Seminar

The PA Forests Web Seminar Center ( is pleased to announce the March on-line program. Gary San Julian, Professor of Wildlife, Penn State School of Forest Resources, will be presenting, "Wildlife Habitat on Your Property" on Tuesday, March 10th at noon and again at 7 p.m. Each seminar lasts approximately one hour.

Forest landowners often have a small number of acres close to their homes they would like to enhance for wildlife, while at the same time preventing wildlife/human conflicts. Many would like to develop habitat for small game, song birds, and larger wildlife species on their land. These goals are not mutually exclusive if short and long term objectives are established and management options are put in place to reach the owners' wildlife and habitat goals. This seminar also counts towards 1.0 credit of Category 2 SAF CFE credits.
Live seminars are scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month at noon and 7 p.m., skipping July and August. Each session is recorded and loaded onto the 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. If you are a member of the Penn State community, you already have your User ID, but we would ask you to register on the website so that you can receive reminders of upcoming programs. 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.
