Are you concerned about our changing climate and want to know how sustainable forest management can create a more resilient forest?

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation will hold a Climate Forestry, Resilience and Carbon Woods Walk on May 22nd from 10 am to noon in Conway.

This Woods Walk will visit a forest in Conway that has been managed for more than forty years to show about how forests can be made less vulnerable to a changing climate.

Mary Wigmore, a private consulting forester will describe management techniques that helped the landowners meet their goals while also increasing the capacity of the forest to respond to disturbances by recovering quickly.

Alison Wright-Hunter, a DCR Service Forester, will provide information about DCR’s new Climate Forestry Program, a Forest Stewardship program for woods owners with more than 10 acres of forest.

This woods walk involves hiking hills on uneven terrain. Participants should dress for the weather and protect against ticks.

This tour is limited to a maximum of 25 attendees, so pre-registration is required.  Register at
