Big Bend Sierra Club November Program - Listening to Birds: What Woodpeckers Tell Us About Forest Management

  • November 08, 2018
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • United Church of Tallahassee, 1834 Mahan Drive, Tallahassee

Wildlife Biologist, Chuck Hess will be the speaker.  He is a retired Wildlife Biologist who worked primarily on the Apalachicola National Forest where he advised the US Forest Service on land management issues and on ways to minimize their impact on natural communities. 

He worked and studied the red-cockaded woodpeckers of the Apalachicola National Forest from 1989 to 2013 and was instrumental in the development of the red-cockaded woodpecker translocation program, a program that prepares and relocates birds to other conservation lands in the southeast. His primary areas of interest are forest management and promoting fire on the landscape, a conservation strategy he feels is of critical importance. He currently serves on the Wakulla County Commission.
