Big Tree New Measuring Guidelines
Tuesday, 09/06/2016 (09:15 AM - 04:30 AM)

People like big trees, and big tree competitions have been alive and well in America since the 1920s and a mainstay program of American Forests since 1940. However, accurately measuring large irregularly shaped trees has never been easy. There is surprising room for significant error even in basic measurements like trunk circumference. In 2013, American Forests accepted the challenge to upgrade measurement methods and establish an expert national tree-measuring force called the National Cadre. Since then an 86-page measuring guide has been produced and new techniques continue to be developed. This workshop is meant to present some history of tree measuring, the primary techniques used by the cadre, and a discussion of where errors are made and how to analyze and minimize them. The morning will be inside and a number of methods will be demonstrated in an afternoon field session. Come prepared for the field. Participants are invited to bring any height-measuring instruments, such as laser rangefinders and clinometers to the afternoon field session. (Bringing equipment is optional).

Wildflower Walk - Weeks State Park Event
Sunday, 09/11/2016 (01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

This can be a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy a walk in the woods. Please join us for our autumn wildflower walk. We will discover the wildflowers and other signs of nature in the park with the aid of naturalist, Matt Peters.

 

Matt is an independent ecologist and botanist with extensive field experience in diverse North American landscapes from Alaska and the Great Plains to the forests of the northeast. His work focuses on botanical and natural resource inventory, mapping, and management in northern New England. He leads workshops on foraging, edible wild plants and plant identification. In his home community of Plainfield, VT, he is involved in local river conservation efforts, serving on the town's Flood Management Advisory Committee and other non-profit boards. Matt's past work has included researching native grassland restoration practices, and assessing the impacts of industrial forestry and land management practices.

Participants should meet at the main entrance of Weeks State Park at 1 PM. Bring raingear just in case and suitable clothing and footwear for an easy walk in the Park.

The 26th Annual Tree Farm and Fun Family, Kid-Friendly Field Day
Saturday, 09/17/2016 (08:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

About the Field Day
To celebrate the Boy Scouts being named Outstanding Tree Farm, we will focus on engaging youths in the outdoors through fun family, kid-friendly activities—and the traditional Tree Farm tour. Join us as the Daniel Webster Council Boy Scouts of America and their forester, Ron Klemarczyk, share their timber management, roads, trails and recreational forest management. The Griswold Scout Reservation Tree Farm encompasses 3,100 acres in the Lakes Region and includes seven mountain summits, four lakes, and numerous recreational trails. This camp introduces over 4,500 scouts to outdoor experiences every summer. The public is also welcome to explore their extensive trail system throughout the Belknap Mountain Range. A conservation easement ensures this property remains undeveloped and identifies specific zones for camping and forestry.
