We will be leading a day long field trip on Saturday, June 27 to show areas threatened by logging in the Greenwood Project area in McCreary and Pulaski counties, south of Burnside near Beaver Creek Wilderness.
We will see examples of how fire and natural disturbance together can create and maintain open communities, and see some examples of beautiful forest proposed for unnecessary logging by the Forest Service. More information on the Greenwood project is here.
The trip will include a driving tour with some off trail walking in the woods on moderate to steep slopes. The hiking portions will not be extensive, but participants should be comfortable walking off trail for distances of at least ½ mile. We will meet in Berea at 9:30 am and Burnside at 11:00 am and wrap up in the field by 4:30 pm. Pre-registration and the signing of a waiver are required to reserve a spot.
The trip will be limited to 15 participants. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, to reserve a spot, and to receive specific meeting locations.
