Join the DLLT Forester Ernest Carle and Natural Resource Manager Susan Bard, along with special guest Todd Waldron from the Ruffed Grouse Society/American Woodcock Society, for a visit to the Daugherty Ridge Grouse and Woodcock Management Area. Participants will learn about the importance of young forest habitat for Ruffed Grouse, American Woodcock, and dozens of other species. You’ll see firsthand how regenerating areas harvested in 2012 have enhanced habitat for these species, and learn about upcoming harvest plans for this area later this fall and winter.
Dress for the weather and prepare for a short walk on level ground with the potential to encounter thick vegetation. Meet at 3:00 p.m. in front of the James Brite School Building at 15 Water Street in Grand Lake Stream.
