Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West Street in Rockport

Knox-Lincoln SWCD is joining the Maine Forest Service (MFS) to co-sponsor a series of field tours to highlight woodland stewardship and conservation practices of private landowners. These free tours will be led by Midcoast District Forester Morten Moesswilde and are open to landowners, loggers, foresters and others interested in the stewardship of small woodlands.

The first tour in the series, Winter Tree ID and Woodland Ecology, will be held at 2 pm on January 18, 2018 at MCHT’s Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West St (Rt 90) in Rockport. In addition to being the home of sustainable agriculture programs for youth and families, Erickson Fields, a program of Maine Coast Heritage Trust, has built approximately 2.5 miles of year-round, public access walking trails that loop through a mixed stand of softwoods and hardwoods. The tour will begin in the parking lot at 2pm. Please dress for field conditions.

For more information, contact Hildy Ellis (Knox-Lincoln SWCD) at 207-596-2040, hildy@knox-lincoln.org or Morten Moesswilde at 207-441-2895. Participants are asked to let Hildy know if they plan to attend so they can be contacted in the event of stormy weather.
