Sustainable Forestry Management hike audio and photos posted Featured

Written by 

On saturday June 16 a group of folks assembled at the Sanctuary Forest office, in the Whitethorn Construction area, for a hike titled, “Sustainable Forestry Management”. The hike was the third in this summer’s 2012 series of hikes sponsored by the Sanctuary Forest. After participating in an opening circle with introductions, an overview of the hike, and descriptions of the Forestry Project, hikers carpooled to the Whitethorn Grove, a 40 acre parcel that straddles the County road and Road A, just north of the whitethorn Fire department. The three hour hike on this property, owned by the Sanctuary Forest, began with descriptions of the property and "light touch" logging practices that will be used.
