The event is next in our series Working with Your Woods, a collaboration of Waldo County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Maine Forest Service. These short tours and workshops are open to landowners, foresters, loggers, and others interested in the stewardship of small woodlands. The tours will offer a brief, two-hour introduction to different properties, landowners, and topics related to the forest. As always, everyone is welcome to join us, get to know some of the interesting woodlands of Waldo County, and ask questions. Note that during the winter most events will start at 2 p.m. to give us enough daylight!
