Institute for Sustainable Forestry Hosting Tour of Standish Hickey State Park This Saturday
This is a press release from the Institute for Sustainable Forestry:
Please join the Institute for Sustainable forestry for the second event in our 2018 field season. On Saturday, April 21st we will be visiting Standish Hickey State Park. Our planned visit to the Fool’s Farm in Salmon Creek is being rescheduled. Continuing in our efforts to profile environmentally sustainable and economically resilient forest stewardship we will explore the evolving management of the park. Standish Hickey State Park is a critical node in our local tourism infrastructure. The park protects and provides public access to an exceptional reach of the South Fork Eel, as well as a notable sequence of late Pleistocene river terraces. When severe budget shortfalls threatened its closure, the community put together a plan that has resulted in an innovative collaborative governance model between the community and the State Parks. Join us as we discuss the past present and future of this cherished public resource.
We will meet at 9 am for car pooling at Shop Smart in Redway and then 10 am at the Standish Hickey entry Kiosk. Bring water, lunch, as well as weather appropriate clothes, shoes and sun protection. The walk will include several hundred feet of elevation gain.
