Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District and Georges River Land Trust (GRLT) are co-hosting a Forestry Walk and Talk on April 29 at 10:00 am to teach landowners how to assess their own properties to improve their forest stand for wildlife, timber or other goals. Led by a wildlife biologist and a forester, this program is free to the public and conservation easement property owners. All social distancing practices will be honored at this outside event. Space is limited, and prior registration is required. Preceding the event, registered participants will receive location details to the private property under a conservation easement held by GRLT. Please dress for the weather and ground conditions.
