Join Morten Moesswilde, the Midcoast District Forester of the Maine Forest Service, Monday, Feb. 8, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Searsmont Community Building for a workshop on basic woodland management. The workshop is intended to help landowners understand a few of their options and provide some ideas for management of their property for wildlife, timber, recreation, aesthetics, or other goals. Moesswilde will discuss boundary lines, forest health, thinning and forest management plans.

The goal of the workshop is to introduce woodland owners to some basic elements of forest stewardship so that they can plan for the long term, whether or not it includes timber harvesting. There will be time for questions and discussion.

This event is part of Georges River Land Trust’s annual Walks & Talks series that connects people with the vast outdoor resources of the Georges River watershed and surrounding areas. Call to register for the workshop. Upcoming events include Animal Tracking at the Appleton Preserve on Saturday, Feb. 13, at 9 a.m. and the Second Annual Eagle Watch Saturday, Feb. 20, at 6:45 a.m. in Warren.
