Now that there are so many new posts each day I keep losing threads I'm interested in and intend to reply to later.
Is there a thread watcher feature other then the e-mail notification?

Under "Thread Tools" is an option called "Subscribe to this Thread". Try that!

We don't have a thread watcher feature per se, but there are a few ways to find a thread that you are looking for. The Advanced Search feature allows you to look for a topic, tag, user name, etc., (whatever you remember about the post that you are looking for):
http://www.wildlifegardeners.org/forum/search.php

If it's a recent post, you can go to the Home page and scroll down through the recent post list. The Home page also has a tag list(lower left of the page) that you can click on to find posts that have been tagged with the topic that you are looking for.

You've already mentioned the email feature that you can use to subscribe to a thread. And of course, the Bookmarks/Favorites feature of your browser is a handy tool that can also keep track of interesting threads. I think this would probably be the closest to what you are looking for. You could create a folder, name it Wildlife Gardeners Threads, and then bookmark the thread and stick it in that folder.

When I go into my control panel I see a list of threads that I have posted in. I get the choice of replying in them or unsubscribing from them but every thread I posted in is automatically subscribed to me somehow which is nice. When I log on, I get lists of all new threads that were started or that have new posts in them and I think those are the ones that get sent to me in my e-mail. I don't know how it works either.

Under “Control Panel”, “Edit Options”, is the options to automatically subscribe to all threads that you post in. If you disable this, then subscribed threads might be more useful to you. See subscribed threads that contain new posts by going to your control panel.

Thanks! There are a few threads I don't care to be notified of if they get new posts.

You look like you are on your way to becoming a forum junkie yourself, Lorax.
