Woods Walk with landowners Ron and LuAnn Benoit – 75 acres of managed woodland and fields in West Brookfield, Ma.
September 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Please join us to learn about the various forestry and land management efforts Ron and LuAnn have made over the last 46 years to their home property in West Brookfield. Expressing a care about the long-term health of their land, Ron and LuAnn have used several State and Federal programs, along with a substantial amount of their own time and money, to improve the quality of their woodlands and produce income from wood products; to create wildlife habitat; to restore a hay field with old apple trees (which the deer really love); and to battle the encroachment of invasive plant species.
This program is free and open to the public and is intended to provide information and inspiration for other woodland owners to manage and improve their forested land for their own economic benefit, for wildlife and the personal satisfaction that comes from land stewardship.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Ed Hood, Executive Director of Opacum Land Trust and Coordinator of the MassConn Sustainable Forest Partnership at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by leaving a message for him at 508-347-9144, by Sept. 27th.
Directions to the program, and any changes due to weather, will be provided to RSVPs, so please be sure to include contact information.
