Forest Ecology Woodland Walk at Frost Valley Model Forest

  • Saturday, June 1, 2024, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Join us for a guided woodland walk at the Frost Valley Model Forest! With over 5,000 acres, learn about the best management practices and land use strategies Frost Valley uses to maintain a healthy and productive working forest within the NYC Watershed. See various forest stands and hear about silviculture methods and the maple sugaring program.

In addition, learn about the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Master Forest Owner (MFO) program and how you can request a free forest visit to help prioritize your woodland goals or become a volunteer MFO. Following the woodland walk, we’ll meet for an optional outdoor “bring your own lunch” forest forum to discuss forest topics and the Master Forest Owners program in greater detail.
