Session 3: What You Need to Know About Pre-Construction Wildlife Sweeps, Nesting Birds and Your Project
Speaker: Brett Bodeux, P. Biol., Terrestrial Ecologist
Pre-construction wildlife or bird nest sweeps are increasingly common tasks to support construction projects and preliminary activities, such as geotechnical investigations. However, there is still a lot of uncertainty about the process and how wildlife sweeps fit in to projects or activities. This webinar will go over the fundamentals of pre-construction wildlife sweeps and address the what, why, when, where, and who that's involved. It will include a discussion of the potential outcomes and impacts of a pre-construction wildlife sweep on a project, and provide insights about potential mitigation measures that might be employed. The webinar will help project managers, planners, and team members to understand the basics of pre-construction wildlife sweeps so that they can confidently incorporate and manage these sweeps as part of their projects.
