|Restoration and Resilience in New Jersey's Forests |
November 19-20, 2013, Merrill Creek Reservoir, Washington, New Jersey and Duke Farms, Hillsborough, New Jersey
| ||Extreme weather events. Forest fragmentation. Invasive species. Deer browse....New Jersey's forests are in need of restoration. In the words of forester and Forest Guild member Bob Williams, "How best to achieve that restoration in such a wide variety of forests is complex, with no one-size-fits-all solution." Join in science-based workshops, presentations, and discussions of challenges and solutions in restoring resiliency to New Jersey's forests. The November 19 field workshop at Merrill Creek Reservoir in Washington, NJ will explore ongoing salvage operations and restoration activities in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The November 20 program at Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ will examine the state of New Jersey's forests and case studies in adaptive management in northern New Jersey, southern New Jersey, and the Urban Forestry frontier. A working draft of the agenda is now available, and registration is open through November 15. Due to demand, LAST-MINUTE REGISTRATIONS will be accepted through 11/19. Please register here.|
