Forest management tour and a woodlands app
Event type: Event
October 21, 2017, 9:30 am
Join Tom Worthley, University of Connecticut associate extension professor for Forest Resources, for a field trip to visit actively managed forest tracts in the Storrs area, on Saturday Oct. 21 (rain date Sunday, Oct. 22) at 9:30 a.m.
Tom will highlight different forest management practices, why they are used, and their results. This is a great opportunity to learn what we can do to improve the forest, deal with forest pests and disease, and manage for different uses. Worthley reports that Connecticut State Forester Christopher Martin has asked to be included that day. He and a colleague want to demonstrate a new woodland management “app” called “About My Woods.”
We will meet at the north end of Horsebarn Hill Rd. in Storrs, on the corner with Rt. 195 (the corner with the red barn) top of the hill. Park in the nearby UConn visitor parking and look for JT signs. We will carpool to the sites from there.
