This year's Blackfly Breakfast, the 20th annual, will be held on Tuesday, April 17, in Henniker, and this year there will be an afternoon seminar in addition to the usual morning program.
Join your fellow foresters and loggers for the market roundup, other updates, and a commemoration of the upcoming 80th anniversary of the Hurricane of 1938. Author Steve Long will describe a time before chainsaws and skidders when New England's equivalent to Hurricane Katrina hit our forests; he will also describe the results of the storm that we see etched on the land today.
Stay for the optional afternoon workshop (space limited) to learn about the new Dirt to Trees to Wildlife mapper. DTW is an online tool and you will set up a free ArcGis account and develop a report for a tract of your choice.
More information about the 20th Annual Blackfly Breakfast can be found online.
