COOKSBURG, Pa. (EYT) — Join the Foundation for Sustainable Forests for a talk and walk this Saturday, October 15, at 11:00 a.m.
Learn about forest age and species diversity, resilience, and the worst-first approach to timber harvesting.
Forest management specialists will give a brief presentation, and then a short (optional) walk along beautiful Tom’s Run to highlight the timber stand management practices FSF has been implementing with good success.
This event is free; rsvp via facebook is appreciated.
A fire will be going with coffee, tea, and light snacks available. Please bring a water bottle, and feel free to bring something to warm in the CCC fireplace.
The event will be outside, under a CCC shelter, so please dress for the weather. The walk portion is optional, and will require clambering over two downed three-foot windfall tree trunks, but is otherwise easy.
Shelter #2 is off Forest Road – GPS = 41.3474127,-79.2202403, or google code 8QWH+XW Cooksburg, Pennsylvania.
