Workshop on forest stewardship designed to help landowners understand the impacts of land management decisions on forest health and function.
Cary Institute wildlife biologist Mike Fargione and Dutchess Land Conservancy ecologist Julie Hart will lead a workshop on forest stewardship.
This program is designed to help landowners understand the impacts of land management decisions on forest health and function.
Attendees will learn about the ecology and history of local forests, how to create a simple forest inventory, and how to identify threats to forest health – with a focus on ecology-guided management goals.
We will be outdoors part of the day doing non-strenuous fieldwork, so please wear appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes. Bring raingear if necessary.
The program will begin at Cary Institute East/Carriage House at 2917 Sharon Turnpike (Rte. 44) in Millbrook, New York.
The number of participants is limited. Registration is required. The fee is $25. Lunch will be provided.
The event is cosponsored by Dutchess Land Conservancy.
