WISCONSIN YOUNG FOREST PARTNERSHIP
Creating wildlife habitat together
The Wisconsin Young Forest Partnership advocates
and promotes management for young forest habitat
on public and private forestland.
"This is not an effort to cut old growth forest or to convert stands of northern hardwood to faster-growing aspen with an eye toward creating forest products,"
says Amber Roth, a habitat biologist with the Golden-Winged Warbler Working Group
"Instead, our goal is to educate and engage landowners who are not currently managing their forested lands, so that they’ll consider all of their management options and, we hope, decide to make and enhance young forest for wildlife in appropriate places."
WYFP partners agree to "identify, promote, and deliver conservation programs that assist landowners with land management through the use of combined resources between agencies, organizations and companies." That kind of cooperation will pay dividends for the wild creatures that depend on young forest, also known as "early successional habitat."
