Forestry Ski Tour at NorthWoods Demonstration Forest
March 9, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Although winter is a quiet season in the woods, it’s a great time to think about forest management. Join us on Saturday, March 9 from 10 AM to 1 PM, for the second forestry ski tour this season (the first was at Bluffside Farm in Newport).
Take a tour through the NorthWoods Demonstration Forest in East Charleston, much of which is conserved with VLT. Come see how we sustainably and productively manage our own woodlands. We’ll start on groomed Nordic ski trails and then venture onto untracked snow! We will visit past and future harvest areas, while discussing the ecology of areas that we manage and also the sensitive areas that we leave alone.
We will meet at NorthWoods Demonstration Forest, 154 Leadership Drive, East Charleston at 10 AM for a great three-hour tour of the woods. This tour will cover 6-10 kilometers of Nordic skiing in variable conditions, best suited to intermediate/advanced skiers – or energetic beginners! Wider Nordic backcountry skis are recommended but not required. After the tour, we will reconvene for snacks and hot drinks.
To RSVP and for additional information, please contact Sam Perron at the NorthWoods Stewardship Center.
