Managing Woodlots for Birds
Ken Elliott, RPF
Senior Forester with FSmith Consulting Inc.
Ken will describe some of the science that went into co-authoring a book entitled “A land manager’s guide to conserving habitat for forest birds in southern Ontario” and he uses it as a framework for providing advice on how land managers can focus their actions on improving their woodlots for forest birds.
Ken Elliot, RPF:
Ken lives north of Peterborough in the rural community of Ennismore. Ken recently retired from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry after a 35-year career. He continues as an avid outdoor enthusiast and volunteers with various forestry and nature organizations but also dabbles in consulting as a part-time senior forester with FSmith Consulting and as a silvicultural instructor with Forests Ontario and the CIF, mostly helping to deliver the provincial tree marker training program. His career has spanned operations, science, policy and program development where he tested silvicultural approaches, and transferred knowledge through presentations and as part of multi-disciplinary writing teams for scientific papers and guiding documents.
