Event Description: 

Join Forester's Frank Cervo and Dan Evans in this noon walk as they show off different sites at the James L. Goodwin State Forest. They will discuss current forest management activities, future plans, and answer any questions you have about why we cut trees and how the forestry management plans support healthy and diverse forests. We will discuss the role of disturbance in forest succession, the ways in which climate change is related, forest products, wildlife habitat, recreation, invasive species, and the long-term resiliency of forest resources at Goodwin. This is a great program that aims to give you a greater understanding of our relationship with our forests and a deeper appreciation for the old giants that live in our forests. 

 

This program is open to the public and our Master Woodland Manager students.
