Frazer Forest Stewardship

April 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rescheduled – date tba

Join Master Naturalist Kathryn Kolb for an informative and interactive Frazer Forest walk and Stewardship session. This time of year when buds begin to bloom and native spring ephemeral’s make their seasonal appearance is the optimal time to hone our native species identification skills. Kathryn will share tips on how to recognize some of our “indicator” species, and why they’re important. Come learn and work alongside neighbors and friends as we celebrate and care for this special, old growth forest remnant.

Be prepared to do some invasive removal as we practice identifying high value “indicator species” alongside commonly confused invasives. We will work on removing invasive English Ivy and Monkey Grass in select areas. These skills can be applied to any forest or woodland area in our region – maybe even your backyard. Water, long sleeves, long pants, closed toe shoes, and work gloves are recommended. 

You’ll also learn more about Frazer’s ongoing program to help care for this special remnant of the old-growth forest which was originally connected to the Fernbank and Deepdene tracts, and how to become a Frazer Forest Steward.
