Take a walk in the woods at WOWNet member Sarah's property. Sarah has 1300+ acres with about 40% hardwood and 60% conifer, plus a small sawmill where they process local hardwood into lumber and flooring. Sarah considers their forest a "working forest" under a permanent conservation easement so they have ongoing oak restoration projects. Join us for some great discussion about these activities and more! Following the walk we will have a potluck so please bring your favorite lunchtime snack to share with everyone. RSVP to Tiffany Fegel, WOWnet coordinator.
