Forest Walk at Hidden Valley Nature Center

Wed, 01/13/2021 - 10:15am

Anyone interested in local forestry is invited to attend a Forest Walk on Saturday, Feb. 27, from noon to 2 p.m. at Midcoast Conservancy’s Hidden Valley Nature Center (HVNC).

Walk hosts include HVNC Forester Barrie Brusila, HVNC Co-Founder Tracy Moskovitz, and Midcoast Conservancy Forestry and Lands Manager Tim Libby; participants will join them for a walk during which the hosts will explain the Crop Tree Release projects at Hidden Valley and how they relate to forest health, wildlife and habitat, soil and water quality, trail layout, and low impact harvest techniques.

This is the second in a three-part series. The first walk looked at the Pre-crop Tree Release; this walk will address what goes on during the Crop Tree Release, and the final walk will look at what happens after crop tree release.

Participants should meet at the Barn; everyone should bring a mask and be prepared to maintain physical distancing protocols. The rain date for the event is Sunday, Feb. 28, same time. Registration for the free walk can be found at
