Helping Vermont’s forests adapt to climate change

Join us to visit the site of an upcoming forest management project at the Catamount Community Forest. This project will involve managing a relatively young forest for old growth characteristics—creating the habitats and the qualities of an old growth forest centuries sooner than they would naturally occur—and will be part of a national research project studying how to manage forests in a changing climate.   

We’ll explore effective ways to manage our forests for resilience and adaptability while also achieving other goals, including biodiversity conservation, forest health, renewable resources, and bird habitat. We can help our forests stay healthy and productive while continuing to provide all the benefits we depend upon.

This event is the first in a two-part series! We’ll be hosting another visit to the site in October after the project has been completed.
