Grafton County Forest (meet at the farm stand)

UNH Extension is partnering with the Grafton County Conservation District (GCCD) on a FREE 3-part workshop series, designed to increase understanding of the relationship between property ownership goals and objectives to on-the-ground practices.
The first two events will be held at the Grafton County forest, 3855 Dartmouth College Highway, NH Route 10, North Haverhill, NH. We will meet at farm stand across the road from County Complex. The third event will be held in the complex, at the Grafton County UNH Cooperative Extension conference room.
The first workshop in the series will be geared towards to landowner, although everyone is invited to attend. At the woodlot, we will discuss different goals and objectives for owning and caring for a property, offer some basic options for management based on these goals, and discuss the process to get started. (The Society of American Foresters has awarded 2.5 Category 1 CEU's for this workshop. The NH Professional Loggers Program has awarded 3.0 PLP Recertification Hours for this workshop.)
The second workshop in the series will be geared towards foresters, loggers, and natural resource professionals, however, everyone is invited to attend. Based on goals and objectives determined in the first workshop (Part 1), we will look at management options and silvicultural prescriptions/practices for reaching these goals, considering soils, species, site, markets, and more. We will talk about on-the-ground practices, equipment, and technologies best suited to achieve the desired results. Participants will learn some new options for managing forestland; programs available to assist; and options for equipment and technologies available to conduct the management work. (The Society of American Foresters has awarded 2.5 Category 1 CEU's for this workshop. The NH Professional Loggers Program has awarded 3.0 PLP Recertification Hours for this workshop.)
The third workshop in the series will be an opportunity to bring together landowners and professionals to discuss results from the two previous field sessions. Presentations on soils and Dirt-Trees-Wildlife will be made, along with presentations about programs available to provide technical or financial assistance for practices. There will be time for one-on-one conversations between landowners and professionals, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) staff, and Cooperative Extension specialists. Light refreshments will be provided by the Grafton County Conservation District during the final session. Registration is required. Donations are appreciated to cover the cost of food. Please register by September 29 for the final session for food planning purposes. (The Society of American Foresters has awarded 4.5 Category 1 CEU's for this workshop. The NH Professional Loggers Program has awarded 5.0 PLP Recertification Hours for this workshop.)
