Franklin Land Trust will hold a Foresters for the Grouse tour to see new habitat improvements at FLT’s Guyette Farm in Plainfield on Saturday, November 9th , from 10 am to noon.

Last winter, 17.5 acres of forested land at the Guyette Farm was harvested to improve ruffed grouse and woodcock habitat. Nine months later new growth is springing up and habitat for wildlife is plentiful.

Join FLT land stewards for a tour of the area. Learn about our wildlife management goals, how we are working to accomplish them, and our plans for using wood harvested from Guyette Farm.

The tour is free but participants should pre-register by calling 413 625-9151.   Participants should dress for the weather and wear boots.
