Discover How Forestry Operations And Cultural Preservation Can Co-exist
Sat. Jun 3
Nehantic State Forest in Lyme is undergoing considerable forestry operations. This includes timber and firewood harvesting, thinning to promote forest diversity and opening the canopy to create wildlife habitat. This forest is home to substantial cultural resources, including stoneworks from the agricultural and Native American eras. We will see how forestry and cultural preservation can successfully coexist, along with ways to discriminate between agricultural remnants and Native American ceremonialism, including stone walls, ancient and recent. State forester Alex Amendola will be present to answer questions regarding silviculture practices.
This is rugged terrain, with plenty to see, and we can continue as long as there is interest.
Walking sticks encouraged; dogs welcome.
