Witt Hill Road
CANCELLED. Due to the unpredictable snow and lack of parking this event has been cancelled. Out of respect to the Worthington Highway Department we are going to keep the road clear during the storm.
Hilltown Land Trust will be hosting a demonstration and Q&A about environmentally and economically sustainable oxen logging! Seventh-generation oxen teamster and licensed forester, Tom Jenkins, will be demonstrating techniques for harvesting timber with draft animals followed by a discussion about sustainable forestry practices, the invasive pest emerald ash borer, the Chapter 61 program and more.
Come see this beautiful pair, Rock and Star, work with Tom to move large logs with ease! This event is family friendly with activities for kids being offered while the Q&A is in session.
The demonstration will take place on a private property that has recently undergone a timber harvest by Tom and his team of oxen. Participants should expect to be outside for the duration of the talk and be able to walk through the woods in variable snow conditions on uneven terrain. Please dress warmly!
$10 fee for Hilltown Land Trust members and $15 for nonmembers. Kids are free! Become a member of HLT for $50 and get one adult admission free to this event!
