NFC - MFO Woodswalk—October 13th, 2018

NFC member, Ken Gaines, will be our host this year for our annual member woodswalk. However, this will be a special event as it will be co-sponsored by the Niagara Frontier Chapter and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Forest Owner program coordinated by Emily Staychock, Watershed/Environmental Educator, Cornell Co-operative Extension of Yates County.

The walk will be open to the public and NFC members at no cost, and the goal is to help folks understand the benefits of forest management and give them some ideas of projects that they might like to implement on their own properties.

Forester, Eric Stawitzky will attend as well, to provide info about forest management and DEC assistance for private forest owners. Ken has had three different logging projects, and these will be good to highlight on the walk. Ken will also highlight any other work he’s done or plans to do. This is a good opportunity to market the role of the private consulting forester. Eric, Ken and the DEC forester will do a presentation before the walk and include the features that will be highlighted.

Emily will be heavily marketing this event so there should be a great turn out, both NFC Members and others interested.

Beverages and snacks will be provided, bring a bagged lunch. Ken’s property is located in Concord, NY and our walk is planned for 10am-2pm.
