Forest Management: Seeing the Forest and the Trees

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History's 9th annual conservation symposium this year will focus this year on our forests.  The museum staff has lined up a great slate of field trips, speakers and workshops to help answer important questions about how we manage our forests in Ohio and beyond.  Guests include Dr. Cindy Hale, who will present a workshop on Thursday September 6 on the Invasive Earthworm Rapid Assessment Tool.  During the presentations of Friday September 7, guests include Dr. Joan Maloof, author of Among the Ancients:  Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests, and Dr. Michael Saunders, who will present "Ten Little Things to Increase Forest Resiliency".

And don't forget field trips, on Thursday and Saturday, including visits to Hadlock Preserve, Singer Lake, Grand River Terraces, and Cox Preserve, all fantastic areas harboring a great deal of biodiversity.  I'm not going to be able to make this years conference, and I feel like I'm going to miss quite a bit!  Sign up now at the museum's website.
