NICHOLS, N.Y. — Join the Southern Finger Lakes Chapter of the NY Forest Owners Association for a walk in the woods of the Hobbs Family on Saturday, June 2nd from 9:30 to Noon. 2320 Stanton Hill Road; Nichols, NY 13812.
Some of the things that we’ll see and discuss at their farm is the utilization of their own timber with a Baker sawmill for Ben’s woodworking business, a centralized wood boiler system that keeps two families warm in the winter, invasive brush control projects, and a portion of the woods that is approaching old-growth status.
There’s much to see and discuss, so please join us if you can! This walk is free and open to the public, but please help us plan by sending an rsvp to Brett Chedzoy at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone: (607) 742-3657. The walk will take place rain or shine and cover approximately one mile of forest terrain, so please dress accordingly!
