Agriculture in the Community: Branching into Forestry
Come enjoy hands-on activities to learn about what forestry is and how it benefits us, just in time for the winter season! James L. Goodwin played in the story of forestry within Connecticut, so we hold a unique perspective and extensive history here at Goodwin! This program is geared for kids of grade school age, but all are welcome!
Sigma Alpha is assisting with this program. They are a professional agricultural sorority affiliated with the University of Connecticut College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. The Agriculture in the Community program is part of a national mandate to educate the public about various agricultural endeavors.
This event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
The James L. Goodwin Forest and Conservation Center were gifts to the people of Connecticut from James L. Goodwin, one of America's first professional foresters and a long-time CFPA Board Member. The Center is jointly managed by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks.
