Waldo County Small Scale Forest Stewardship Field Tours
Join us for a fun and practical series that will offer many ideas for enhancing and caring for your woodland. Waldo County Soil and Water Conservation District and Maine Forest Service are co-sponsoring a series of short field tours to highlight forest stewardship and conservation practices of private landowners, beginning in July. Many landowners have quietly been implementing a wide variety of careful, long-term management activities and techniques for years, to enhance their woodlands’ productivity, habitat, and beauty for decades to come. Some activities require considerable labor and resources, but others do not. These short tours are open to landowners, foresters, loggers, and others interested in the stewardship of small woodlands. The tours will provide a brief, two-hour introduction to the landowners and their goals, often with the forester and/or harvester working with the landowner. They will offer participants a chance to see some of the interesting work they have done, ask questions, and gather ideas for how to manage their own woods.
The next events in our series will continue beginning in late October, with fun events through the winter. More information will be posted on our home page blog soon!
