Forestry Series Talk:
Thursday July 26th at 7:00pm: Forestry Series-Understanding the importance of firewood to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center – much more than just a few cords of wood.
Rick Morrill (Northern Forest Conservation Services) and Dick Dreissigacker and Judy Geer (Craftsbury Outdoor Center) – The Craftsbury Outdoor Center (COC) is a non-profit organization which in addition to promoting participation in lifelong sports, strives to use and teach sustainable practices and protect and manage the surrounding land, lake and trails. Part of this effort includes growing and harvesting 40-50 cords of firewood annually to heat the buildings of the COC campus. This presentation will explain how this work is done, and the role of firewood in achieving the COC’s mission of environmental stewardship.
