Parker's Creek Preserve - East Loop - was recently added to the Old-Growth Forest Network. Members of the American Chetnut Land Trust hiked through the preserve with me before putting up the sign. This is such a beautiful, diverse, forest! That evening I gave a talk at the Chestnut Cabin of Scientists Cliffs.

 Heading out for Massachusetts in the morning. First stop = Smith College. At 4pm on Oct 11th we will hike through the forest at the MacLeish Field Station. At 5:30pm I'll be giving a talk there. The next day I will join the good people of the Eastern Native Tree Society for an advanced tree measuring workshop at Mohawk Trail State Forest. At 4:30pm we will dedicate the forest into the Old-Growth Forest Network. The following day, the 13th, at 11am we will honor the late Mary Byrd Davis with a tree naming ceremony. Her husband Bob and son John will be present. Immediately following that we will dedicate the William Cullen Bryant Rivulet Forest into the Network. See this link for more details about the forest:
All events are open to the public.
I'm looking forward to some beautiful fall colors and delicious old-growth air.
