Woods Forum 2013

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Great Barrington Trails and Greenways, Berkshire Natural Resources Council, and UMASS recently sponsored a Woods Forum at the Kellogg Conservation Center for community landowners who were seeking resources on how to best manage their property.  The event was well attended, with 35 landowners present as well as a number of professionals from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, MA DCR, Native Habitat Restoration, and private foresters.  Dave Kittredge, professor of Forestry at UMASS, was the facilitator.  The day began with a presentation by Dave to set the stage and then moved into Q&A discussion with the folks assembled.  A light, nutritious and delicious lunch was prepared by Christine Ward and then those that were able proceeded on a property walk to view some ongoing land stewardship efforts on the KCC property and continue our discussion in the field.  Thanks to all who showed up and made this a worthwhile and informative event.
