Join Plum Creek on July 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for a woods tour, which will include visiting a deer habitat enhancement harvest, an active feller/buncher harvesting operation, a quick stop at the Conte NFWR visitor center and a woodcock habitat enhancement management area on the NFWR. We will have foresters and biologists leading the tour.
The tour is free. Take a lunch, dress for the weather and a 20-minute walk into the deeryard (take walking sticks if you have them for walking on skid trail). Tour hosts will provide cold water, soda, juice, and the bus. Pre-registration is required by July 10 by calling 802-747-7900 or emailing email@example.com. Tour is limited to 35 participants; sign up today.
Attendees will meet in Island Pond behind the old train station at the north end of town (signs will be posted), park there, and ride the bus that will take everyone to the tour locations. Bus will be leaving at 9:30 a.m. sharp. Arrive early.
