Sustainable Forestry & Wildlife Walk at Buffam Brook Community Forest
March 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Last year, the new Buffam Brook Community Forest was conserved to highlight the benefits of sustainable forestry on climate change resilience. Take a hike into this unique conservation area with two scientists—forest ecologist Paul Catanzaro and wildlife biologist Dave King—to learn how forest management impacts wildlife and climate change resilience.
Join us on Saturday, March 10, from 10 am – noon, at Buffam Brook Community Forest in Pelham to learn about the basic principles of sustainable forestry and how these techniques can increase a forest’s resilience to the effects of climate change. This includes supporting wildlife as it adapts to a changing climate.
Paul Catanzaro is a University of Massachusetts Extension Assistant Professor of forestry in the department of Environmental Conservation.
Dave King is a research wildlife biologist with the U.S. Forest Service, and adjunct faculty with University of Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources Conservation.
This program is free, but limited to 20 participants, and registration is required. There is no rain date for this program.
