Event Description: 

The Goodwin Conservation Center will host the second program of the Forestry for Landowners Discovery Series. This is the second of four sessions discussing basic forestry concepts and skills used in Connecticut.  During this session we will take a closer look at aerial photos and topographical maps.  What did foresters do before GPS? How did they avoid getting lost?  What information can you get from an aerial photo?  Can you tell what type of trees are growing in a stand from just a black and white aerial photo?  A forester can!  Discover what you can learn from maps and old photos of your own property. Not just for landowners! All are welcome to this indoor program. Inclement weather postpones, call for more information.
