Bird Decline: Mark Jacobs and Amanda Mahaffey

Forestry for Birds
https://foreststewardsguild.org/

Today we continue a conversation about bird decline on the Tuesday Morning Show. Joining us is Mark Jacobs - he's a retired land commissioner of Aitkin County and Amanda Mahaffey from the Forest Stewards Guild to talk about the "Forestry for Birds" initiative as a potential way to address the decline in forest birds.

As a mail carrier in rural Grand Rapids, Minn., for 35 years, John Latimer put his own stamp on a career that delivered more than letters. Indeed, while driving the hundred-mile round-trip daily route, he passed the time by observing and recording seasonal changes in nature, learning everything he could about the area’s weather, plants and animals, and becoming the go-to guy who could answer customers’ questions about what they were seeing in the environment.
