Forestry Crew Assists the Golden-Winged Warbler

As part of the Forestry Crew's commitment to the Triad of Warren Wilson College, it participates in service projects with various local agencies. One such project has been with the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, working to create habitat for the Golden-Winged Warbler by clearing areas on Little Hump Mountain in the Highlands of Roan. Chris Coxen, the Field Ecologist for the Conservancy, has spotted two males singing in the areas where the Forestry Crew has worked over the previous two years. We are very excited to see our work pay dividends in such a short time period!
