Join WCA’s Urban Biologist, Lissette Rios, as she gives an overview of the Best Management Practices
developed by Tree Care for Birds and other Wildlife groups. The purpose of the BMPs is to provide guidance
to the tree care and landscape industry about how to minimize impacts on wildlife and manage wildlife habitat during tree work. Many wildlife species are in decline due primarily to habitat loss and fragmentation, raising the importance of the work done by the tree care and landscape industry. These Best Management Practices (BMPs) are to support wildlife and help those in the industry follow current laws and regulations.

Lissette Rios, WCA’s Urban Biologist and Grant Supervisor, earned a Master of Environmental Management (MEM) with a focus on sustainable and resilient community development from Western State Colorado University and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from UC Riverside. In her current role at WCA, she has been assisting municipal and non-profit partners in managing their urban forestry grants, as well as conducting wildlife inspections such as nesting bird surveys to mitigate the impacts on wildlife during tree work.
Additional duties include the handling and transfer of wildlife to rehabilitation facilities, consulting with the CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife (FWS) to ensure WCA follows federal and state regulations, supervising field crews during bird nesting season, addressing community concerns, establishing partnerships with local rescue and rehabilitation nonprofits and provide wildlife.

The meal will be catered by Dutch Oven:
Menu: Pulled pork, Grilled chicken thighs, Grilled sausage, Garlic bread, Macaroni salad, Green salad, Hot berries & Ice cream
