Growing Mushrooms
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Do you like mushrooms? If the answer is yes, here's another question.

 

Would you like to grow mushrooms? If that answer is also yes, you're in luck because Boscawen Agricultural Commission is offering a workshop on growing shiitake mushrooms.

 

Jim Ramanek, Master Gardener and owner of Warner River Organics, will  show you how easy and fun it is to cultivate edible mushrooms using logs, stumps, and the moist shade of your wooded property or the shaded back of the garage.

 

In this workshop, you will not only learn how to cultivate mushrooms but how to select wood, location, tools and supplies. Jim will present the whole process of drilling, plugging, waxing, stacking, waiting and forcing. You will learn about other mushrooms you can grow and receive information on suppliers for plug spawn.

TIGER - A Software Tool for Timber Inventory Growth and Economic Review
(08:30 AM - 03:00 PM)


Join the Maine Forest Service, UNH Cooperative Extension, and Dr. Carl Mize to learn about TIGER  Software—newly developed, easy-to-use tools for foresters to make decisions about how to meet landowner's objectives.


Registration & refreshments at 8:30. Program starts promptly at 9:00.


TIGER (Timber Inventory, Growth and Economic Review)
WC Woodlands and Compartments) 2.0 helps analyze inventory data and simulate forest management. This workshop will present the Maine and New Hampshire variant of TIGER WC, and will focus on four computer programs developed by Dr. Mize. The programs can be previewed at http://cwmsoftware.com/.


1.)
TIGER for Woodlands and Compartments (TIGER WC) helps analyze inventory data and simulate forest management of woodlands in 20 midwestern and northeastern states and produces graphical and
tabular diameter distributions. 

2.) TIGER for Stratified Sampling can be used when a woodland has been stratified (compartmentalized) and inventories done by compartment.

3.) TIGER for Estimating Basis estimates the value of the trees in
woodlands at the time of purchase (basis).

4.) TIGER for Converting Forest Metrix to TIGER files reads data files
created by the Forest Metrix inventory program and converts them into data files that can be read by TIGER for Woodlands and Compartments.

A review of simple systematic versus stratified sampling will be
presented.
