Master Forest Owner Refresher Training

  • Saturday, October 14, 2017, 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Preparing the Woods for More Frequent Disturbance

As extreme weather events and pest outbreaks become more common, do you wonder if your woodlot is in a strong position to recover and thrive? This MFO refresher will focus on The Nature Conservancy’s 17,000 acre Tug Hill conservation area, with the primary long-term goal of improve forest resilience. Learn about the history of the Tug Hill and TNC’s goals to guide it towards increased species diversity and structural complexity. Help Beta test a new Forest Resiliency Report Card tool for landowners – How resilient is your woodlot?

Morning session begins at 9 a.m. at Snow Ridge Resort and afternoon is in the field – please dress for Tug Hill weather! Morning refreshments and lunch will be served.
