Here at MyWoodlot, we strive to add a new activity every week, and we want those activities to be as helpful and interesting for you as possible. So while we’re happy to put up our own ideas, we’re always open to projects and resources you think would be useful to have on here.

Here at MyWoodlot, we strive to add a new activity every week, and we want those activities to be as helpful and interesting for you as possible. So while we’re happy to put up our own ideas, we’re always open to projects and resources you think would be useful to have on here.

We had a situation like this back in February. Anne Swaim of the Saw Mill River Audubon Society in Westchester County, New York reached out to one of our team members, Brendan Murphy. Working for Audubon, Anne naturally had an interest in birds, and she suggested that we add some more resources on how to identify them. Anne clued us in to an amazing bird call resource called Larkwire, an online game all about bird songs. Thanks to Anne, we added the Learn Bird Calls activity in early March. That activity is a lot more useful, interactive, and just plain fun with the addition of Larkwire to it, and we might never have known to add that resource if Anne hadn’t pointed the way.

But you don’t have to be an expert from Audubon to send us your ideas. As you explore MyWoodlot, are there important topics you think are missing? Do you have an idea for a new woods-based activity? Maybe you’ve come across a really useful video, app, or how-to article online that you think other folks could benefit from. Send it and any other ideas for new topics our way. You can contact our team by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or use the comments feature below.

In addition to contacting us directly, you can also use the MyWoodlot forum if you have a specific question or issue that our regular activities aren’t answering. The forum is a great place for you to get advice from both other landowners and the MyWoodlot team, and it’s often the best way to find out more about the weird, unique situations you may encounter on your land.

MyWoodlot is for you, and we want to keep it that way. Together we can make it even better.
