CDC - Annual Winter Gathering

Annual Winter Gathering Will be Held in Menands

The Capital District Chapter will hold its Annual Winter Gathering dinner/meeting on Saturday January 20th starting around 4 pm, at the Bethany Presbyterian Church, 20 Lyons Avenue in Menands, NY. This is both an enjoyable and informative evening. If you have never participated before, here are a few things to expect:

  • You’ll have a chance to meet and talk to others who all share a common interest in forest conservation. Many own some woodland acreage, although that’s not a requirement to be a member. Chapter members are a diverse and friendly group of people. Chances are that you’ll share some interesting conversations with others who share your interests.
  • It’s a pot luck type of dinner so you’ll need to bring a dish to share. Since everybody brings something, dinner turns into a smorgasbord of delicious food – a variety of hot and cold meats, salads, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts. One thing is for sure - nobody leaves hungry!
  • This year we have a special guest, Tim Russell from the Quality Deer Management Association. Tim earned his forest resources management degree from SUNY-ESF and previously worked as a forest technician where he marked and scaled timber, inspected logging operations and conducted forest inventories. He and his wife, Amy, reside in Cortland, N.Y. Tim will give a presentation on the need for and benefits of young forests in New York State and how woodland owners can manage for them.

Please join us for this event. It is FREE, except for the ‘dish to share’. For planning purposes, we ask you reserve your place by contacting our Secretary, Laura, at, and let her know what type of dish you plan to share.
