The Foundation for Sustainable Forests, a land trust based in Crawford County, will be hosting its annual conference “Loving the Land Through Working Forests,” an in-the-field outreach event, on May 20.

Located at the Foundation’s newly protected Moxie Woods near Greenville in Otter Creek Township, Mercer County, the day will include educational woods walks, horse-logging demonstrations, activities for children and an exciting speaker series for adults.
Featured presenters include Dr. James Finley of Pennsylvania State University, who will open the day with an address titled “Your Forest: Living and Working in the Future.”  
The program to follow includes sustainable forestry woods walks with FSF President Troy Firth and guest presenter Marshall Pecore, Forest Manager at the Menominee Forest in Wisconsin, “Forestry for Birds” and “Native Planting for Native Pollinators” with Moxie Woods donor Jean Engle and naturalist Terry Lobdell, and “Woodland Legacy Planning” with Allyson Muth of The Center for Private Forests and Nadia Havard, Esq. of Knox Law.
