Woods Walk

2p, Jun 11th, 2022

Join Elisabeth (Tii) McLane, Consulting Forester and Forest Ecologist based in Strafford, Vermont, on a walk through the Woody Adams Conservation Forest. We hope for a broad discussion of forest ecology and management as we explore this great piece of conserved land.

Bring your questions and thoughts on topics such as forest ecology, forest health, deer browse, climate change, carbon storage, land use history, and management options.

Meet at the Gile Mountain Trailhead - 4.3 miles up Turnpike Road, Norwich. Plan to carpool, if possible, since parking is limited.

This will be a moderate hike of two to three hours which may involve some bushwhacking, so wear appropriate shoes.

The Woody Adams Conservation Forest is a tract of land owned by the Town of Norwich and protected by a conservation easement held by the Upper Valley Land Trust and the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board.

For planning purposes and if we need to postpone the walk (heavy rain, for example), please sign up below. Our rain date is Sunday, June 12th at 2 p.m.
