Helping our forests stay healthy

Join us to learn how to manage for some of the desired characteristics of old forests. We will explore what those characteristics are, how to recognize an old forest, and how to decide whether we should leave our woods alone or do some light active management to achieve those characteristics. We will discuss everything from broad regional conservation goals to on-the-ground details like how to increase down and standing dead wood in a forest.
