Although winter is a quiet season in the woods, it’s a great time to think about forest management. Join the NorthWoods forestry staff, Orleans County Forester, Vermont Land Trust Stewardship Forester, and Memphramagog Watershed Association for a forestry-focused ski tour in the NorthWoods Demonstration Forest to see how we sustainably and productively manage our own woodlands.
Starting on groomed nordic ski trails and then venturing into untracked snow, we will visit past and future harvest areas while discussing the ecology of areas that we manage, and also the sensitive areas that we leave alone. This tour will cover 6-10 kilometers of nordic skiing in variable conditions, best suited to intermediate/advanced skiers (or energetic beginners!). Wider nordic backcountry skis are recommended but not required. Snacks and hot drinks will be provided after the tour.
