Event Details

Join the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and the Dutchess Land Conservancy for a special forum exploring how science-based stewardship on private land can help protect and promote healthy forests and open spaces, now and for future generations.

A morning of presentations will explore threats our forests and natural areas face – from invasive species and climate change to deer overabundance – and actions that can be taken on a site-by-site basis to optimize conditions. A special focus will be given to the overlap between sport hunting and conservation communities, with a roundtable discussion on advancing common ground.

The event is free, but registration is required. Space is limited.
