An Ecological Approach to Forest Stewardship Virtual Workshop Series

May 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Forest Stewardship Workshop #1: Ecology & History of Northeast Forests

From backyard woodlots to larger woodlands, private forest management decisions impact surrounding ecosystems with effects for people, wildlife, and natural resources. Our upcoming virtual workshop series – An Ecological Approach to Forest Stewardship – will give you the tools you need to understand how your decisions influence forest health and function, and how you can help steward this critical resource.

Led by Dutchess Land Conservancy Ecologist Julie Hart and Cary Institute Wildlife Biologist Mike Fargione, this workshop series will explore the basics of forest ecology and stewardship. Learn about the ecology and history of local forests, how to identify threats to forest health, and how to create a simple forest inventory – with a focus on using an ecological approach to set management goals.

The series will consist of three 1½ hour sessions from 6:00 – 7:30pm EDT on consecutive Tuesdays in May. All workshops are free + open to all. Register via Eventbrite to receive Zoom login details.
