Event Type: Presentation

Audience: all are welcome

Organizer: Adam Drouin

Event Description

The James L. Goodwin State Forest is constantly changing. Severe weather events are increasing in frequency and intensity. Invasive insects like spongy moth caterpillar, emerald ash borer, and hemlock woolly adelgid are threatening to change forest composition. Invasive plants are reducing biodiversity, and in places, threaten the persistence of the forest in general. Join DEEP Forestry for a winter hike to discuss these and other issues, and learn more about the active and passive management strategies the Division of Forestry is employing to make our forests resilient to the impacts of climate change. The hike will traverse 2-miles over uneven terrain using trails and roads with variable footing, be prepared with water and proper hiking footwear. The hike will begin at Black Spruce Pond at the end of 11th section road, however we will meet at the Goodwin Conservation Center and drive up in separate vehicles for those who may not know where Black Spruce Pond is.
