Winter woods walk Jan. 22

Thu, 01/06/2022 - 8:00am

What does it really mean to have a "healthy forest?” What would a forest look like during and after some tree cutting?

Anyone looking for answers to those questions and more is invited to come to Hidden Valley Nature Center Saturday, Jan. 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to learn how forest stewardship can benefit wildlife and recreation.

Led by forester Barrie Brusila of Mid Maine Forestry and Tim Libby, forest manager for Midcoast Conservancy, the walk and talk destination will be the current crop tree release project in the Nature Center's forest, where small scale forest management techniques will be discussed while viewing Midcoast Conservancy's active management.

All ages are welcome, and there is no charge. Rain date is Jan. 23. To register, go to or call (207) 389-5150.
