JOIN Southern Tier Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association FOR AN EDUCATIONAL
WALK IN THE WOODS
9:30, SATURDAY, MAY 10, Rain or Shine
Whitney Point, NY
Learn about the many environmental, economic and quality of life benefits our forests provide. Learn about threats to the future forest from invasive vegetation, insects and fungi, over browsing by deer, unsustainable harvesting practices and climate change. See how successful regeneration of the next forest has been accomplished by controlling deer access, eliminating interfering vegetation, and managing sunlight on the forest floor. Compare results with an unmanaged forest stand where regeneration of desirable tree species is absent.
This woodswalk is sponsored by the Southern Tier Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association, in conjunction with their “Restore New York Woodlands” initiative. It is open to anyone who values our forests and is concerned for their future. Children are welcome. The walk will cover approximately one mile over mostly level terrain and one short hill. There may be some wet spots, so wear appropriate footwear. There is no shelter or restroom facility available on the property.
The woodswalk will be held at Jerry Michael’s Tree Farm, 3192 State Route 206, Whitney Point, NY 13862. The property is 1.3 miles East of Whitney Point, on the top of the hill and on the right (South) side of the road. Look for signs and park on the shoulder of the highway. Please call (607) 648-2941if you are coming so that we can plan for additional parking if required.
