Despite an April 1st snow storm, it looks like spring is finally here. We’ll be heading into the Belchertown woods on April 16th and you could come too. On that day, participants in “Women Sustaining Woodlands” (a Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop) will learn how to read the woods, talk to foresters and help draw up plans that will shape those woodlands for recreation, wildlife, income from timber sales, or all of the above. Many of the women who participate in the workshop work in woodlands management through conservation commissions, land trusts, or community boards. Many others own their own lands. All of them are interested in keeping our woodlands healthy. Want to join us? There is still space but preregistration is required.
This workshop won’t be a day at the beach – but it will certainly be a walk in the woods!
