Housatonic Heritage Walk: Seeing the Forest Through the Trees
Join Great Mountain Forest’s manager Jody Bronson, along with GMF board member and forest ecologist Charlie Canham on a walk that begins at a sugarbush management area, then pass through a pine plantation, upland hardwoods, a hemlock stand, old pasture, and end at a New England cottontail rabbit habitat cut area. Learn about forestry, wildlife, forest ecology, invasive species, and rabbit habitat restoration, as well as historical points and past land use.
We will meet at the Great Mountain Forest's Childs Center. The walk begins promptly at 1 p.m. We will hike about 1.5 miles. Wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes and bring water.
The publicity for this program is offered through a partnership of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and the Great Mountain Forest. Great Mountain Forest is over 6,000 acres of actively managed forest land. The Great Mountain Forest has a mission of education, research and recreation under a sustainable forest management program now and for future generations.
