Event Description: 

The Goodwin Conservation Center will host the introductory program of the Forestry For Landowners Discovery Series. This will be the first of several sessions discussing basic forestry concepts and skills used in Connecticut. The woodland backdrop to life in our state is often taken for granted. However, it was shaped from human activity as far back as the Native Americans. This program will explore how Connecticut came to be nearly 60% forested and how foresters from the time of James L. Goodwin to modern day have helped shape and protect this valuable resource. All are welcome to this indoor program. Inclement weather postpones, call for more information.
