We need your help to create, support, and maintain forestry education opportunities at Hopkins. This is your chance to learn by doing a variety of projects in a sustainably managed woodland.
Upcoming or Ongoing Projects and Events include:
- Community Sawmill Work -using the sawmill at Hopkins, help process logs for use on the Demonstration Forest. Bring your own special logs and find what beautiful wood may be hidden inside.
- Adopt a Plot of Trees – after planting trees in many different management units over the years, we have a wide variety of young seedlings and saplings that need maintenance or “release” from competition. One way you can help is to adopt a plot of trees to visit and revisit.
- Assessment of conditions and silvicultural options in 26 acres of 70-80 year old Douglas-fir/ cedar/maple stands that have been thinned periodically. It’s time to visit these stands and see how they are doing and consider thinning vs. selection, or patch harvesting methods.
- Riparian Forest Assessment along Little Buckner Creek – you are invited to participate in developing management options across a range of objectives for timber, habitat, beauty, etc. along with regulatory options and limits.
