The Vermont Woodlands Association and Vermont COVERTS will hold an Active Management for Healthy Forests workshop on May 19th from 9 am to Noon at Clover Hill Tree Farm in Strafford, VT.

Join David Paganelli, Orange County Forester, and Judith Falk, Vermont Woodlands Association Board Member and VT Coverts Cooperator for a program at their Clover Hill Tree Farm in South Strafford.

Steve Faccio, Conservation Biologist with the Vermont Center for Ecostudies will lead a discussion of wetland and riparian habitats, including a rich fen.

David will talk about access improvements, invasive plant treatment and recent pre-commercial forestry work.

Judith will talk about the creation and maintenance of early successional habitats for various mammals, songbirds and pollinators with special attention to Monarch butterflies and how we balance sustainable agriculture with other land management practices.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get out in the woods to see first-hand the many ways these landowners are working to maintain and promote healthy forests!
