Managing Town Forests: Timber, Wildlife, Recreation
1:00pm - 4:00pm
Town-owned conservation lands are for people – places to come together and build community, learn about stewardship of the natural world, and recreate alone or in groups. Town lands protect valuable natural resources – water and wildlife habitat. They can bring income to a town through responsible timber management. Balancing all these interests can be a challenge, but many town in New Hampshire have had great stories to share in how they manage their town forests.
Join us for this FREE field-based workshop to learn how the town of Gilmanton has managed the Thompson Town Forest.

Who: This workshop is perfect for Conservation Commissioners, Town Forest Committee Members, and other town volunteers, but anyone interested in learning about managing land for multiple interests are welcome to attend.
