About the event
Tours of the Dahls' "Belly Acres" will be by walking from station to station through the hills and valleys of the property. Featuring but not limited to: Forest health demonstrations, pond maintenance, topographic issues with harvesting timber, and mechanical vs chemical vegetation management.
Other subjects will be dam maintenance and wildlife benefits of ponds, a hillside managed for aesthetic views, and the impacts of emerald ash borer, white pine blister rust, tip weevils, and heterobasidian root rot.
Dress for the event!
Some terrain will be uneven. Please dress appropriately, including sturdy walking or hiking shoes. Bring a walking stick if desired. The temperature can also change rapidly, so plan to bring a light jacket.
