Sandy Mush Forest Restoration Gathering
When: Saturday, January 25th from 9 to 3 pm
Where: Sandy Mush Community Center in Leicester, NC
This month the Sandy Mush Forest Restoration Coalition will host its first Restoration Gathering — a free, community event intended to provide practical and applied education about forest management and to connect Sandy Mush landowners with resources to sustainably manage family forests. At least a dozen local organizations and agencies will be on-hand to answer your land management questions.
Come hear NC Forest Service, NC Wildlife Resources Commision, and registered foresters speak about the tax-incentive programs and technical services available to assist landowners with forest and land management needs. Together with the Forest Stewards Guild, EcoForesters, community members and other partners, SAHC will be working to increase the Sandy Mush Community’s capacity to restore native species habitat and improve forest stewardship. Through our collective efforts, we aim to nurture healthy, hardy forests to protect ecological values, local culture, economic prospects and quality of life for Sandy Mush residents.
Following the gathering, please consider joining us for the third Sandy Mush Forest Restoration Coalition meeting, where we will discuss ways the Coalition can increase the efficacy of forest restoration activities in Sandy Mush and help the Community implement their conservation goals.
This project is made possible by a grant from the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership.
Register for the event here. Lunch is provided and feel free to bring family and neighbors.
