๐Ÿ“…ย Date: Saturday, December 9th
๐Ÿ•™ย Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
๐Ÿ“ย Location: 47 Old Mountain Rd, Richmond, RI, 02898 (Parking available along the side of the road)

Registration is limited to 30 participants.ย This is a rain or shine event, please come prepared for weather and walking off trail on uneven terrain. There are no bathrooms on site.ย 

๐ŸŒฟย Explore the wonders of sustainable forestry practices with the Southern Rhode Island Conservation District, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, RI Department of Environmental Management, and URI College of Environmental and Life Sciences!

๐ŸŒณย Learn about the importance of climate-smart forestry and its positive impact on the environment. This hands-on tour will showcase practical techniques and initiatives aimed at preserving our precious woodlands for future generations. The Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) project is testing innovative forest management strategies across the US and Canada. Our Rhode Island site at Hillsdale Preserve, Richmond, is tackling climate-stressed oak-hickory forests.

๐ŸŒฒย Three strategies are in play:
Resistance: Maintain current conditions, boost forest health without planting.
Resilience: Adapt to change, favor oak & hickory, promote diversity, and plant native seedlings.
Transition: Help the forest adapt to the future, create gaps, and plant future-ready species.


Let's come together to make a difference in our community and for our planet!ย ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฟ
