Saturday, April 9
Join Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester, for a walk-through of Wheeler Nature Park in South Burlington. As County Forester, Ethan advises landowners, municipalities, and conservation organizations on how to care for and responsibly manage their forests for wood, water, air, wildlife, carbon sequestration and storage, climate change resilience and more. He will discuss the ecology of Wheeler and what management might be appropriate to create great wildlife habitat, control non-native invasive species and support our biodiversity.
To join the walk, park in the Wheeler Homestead lot off of Dorset Street and meet by the trail head. Those looking to participate in this event should be prepared to spend two hours outdoors and to walk in muddy conditions. Children under 18 are welcome, but they do need to be accompanied by an adult. Bring your questions about forests, forest management and the unique ecology of Wheeler.
