Fostering Old Forest Conditions Through Structural Complexity Enhancement

Dates/Times:

1. 12:00 pm on Tuesday, February 9, 2021

2. 7:00 pm on Tuesday, February 9, 2021

Description:

The vast majority of Pennsylvania's forests are middle-aged, with most trees in a forest community being of the same age, often around 100 years old. However, efforts to foster resiliency and favorable habitat conditions across the landscape, statewide, and regionally focus on the need to diversify forest succession at a large scale, creating more early-successional (young forest) and late-successional/old growth (older forest) conditions. With good management, creating young forest habitat is relatively straightforward but working toward older forest conditions can be a less straightforward process for landowners who want to foster those conditions through active management. Sarah Wurzbacher, Penn State Extension Educator in Forest Resources, will talk about how landowners and managers who understand how succession advances naturally in our forests can work with the system to speed up the formation of or enhance key features, resulting in forests that host some of the same structural and functional elements we value in older forests.

Volunteer Invasive Plant Removal

Date/Time:

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm on Saturday, February 13, 2021

Description:

Help remove Multiflora Rose and Wineberries to improve habitat for spring ephemeral wildflowers. Meet at the Massanutten Shelter parking area to hike into the woods and cut down some thorny invasive plants. Multiflora Rose and Wineberries are fast spreading invasive plants that are encroaching on the habitat favored by native spring ephemerals. Spend a couple of hours cutting down invasive plants. Bring good work gloves and loppers if you have them. The park has some, but you will want sturdy leather gloves for these very prickly plants. Dress for the weather, including sturdy footwear and bring some water for hydration. If weather requires cancelation, the rain date will be February 27. Volunteer Vanessa Lewis planned this event.
