What an interesting site! Take a trip to Finland and wander around in one of the managed forests in that country. The company that owns the land, UPM, presents an interactive site that has short videos of many birds living in the forest, pictures and descriptions of insects and plants that you might find, and a section on what constitutes sustainable forestry. The photography is breathtaking and the sounds of the forest invite you to talk a walk to see what you might see.
