will speak about

Albany Pine Bush Preserve Research and Management Update

Since 1991, the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission has worked to restore at least 2,000 fire-manageable acres of healthy, functional inland pine barrens and recover the local population of the endangered Karner blue butterfly. In this presentation, Conservation Director, Neil Gifford, will provide an update of APBPC accomplishments toward those goals. He will also highlight how conservation science has influenced refinements to preserve goals and management strategies.

Neil Gifford is the Conservation Director for the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission, a New York State Public Authority created in 1988 to create and manage a viable pitch pine - scrub oak barrens in Albany New York. Neil is a graduate of Paul Smith’s College and Plattsburgh State University, where he received his M.A. studying the breeding season bird ecology of the fire-dependent jack pine sandstone pavement barrens of Clinton County. As the Conservation Director he is the Commission’s lead scientist, directing all management and research activities, within the 3,300 - acre globally-rare nature Preserve.
