Andrews Community Forest in Richmond is home to diverse wildlife and uncommon communities of plants -- all protected by a conservation easement. Join us to learn more about these features and how an upcoming timber harvest will enhance wildlife habitat and increase the forest’s diversity and ability to cope with climate change.
How do you enhance habitat for unique wildlife species, increase forest diversity, complexity, and its ability to adapt to climate change, and protect sensitive and unique ecological features all at once? Join us for a virtual presentation as we explore the intersection of ecology, conservation, and forest management at the Andrews Community Forest, a town forest in Richmond that Vermont Land Trust helped the town acquire and conserve in 2018.
This event will highlight the forest’s ecology, including unusual communities of plants and wildlife and sensitive features protected by a conservation easement. Conservation easements, and the process of conserving forested land, will also be discussed in addition to the forest management planned in the next year. Hear how an ecologist and a forester view the same land, and how their perspectives shape conservation and management of this unique woodland.
This free webinar is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the natural world and learning more about forest management. Please pre-register today.
