Managing Town Forests: Timber, Wildlife, Recreation
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 Fremont has managed their town forest.
Details: The entire workshop will be spent outdoors rain or shine. Please dress accordingly and bring water and snack if desired.
Who: This workshop is aimed at 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.
