Two-Part Forest Ecology Workshop Set

4/26/2014 7:00 AM

Visit the woods at Hawk Meadow Farm with Michael DeMunn and learn to recognize some mighty members of the forest in a two-part workshop May 10 and June 7. The classes will be held from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

In the first class, we’ll explore the woods in spring before the leaves are fully out, learning to identify trees primarily by bark. During the second class, we’ll take to the woods again after trees have leafed out for the summer. In both workshops, DeMunn will focus on forest ecology <\h>— <\h><\h>the relationships between all the creatures of the woods. These workshops are designed as a set, so it is recommend that they be taken together.

Each workshop cost $25 to attend. Workshops are held at Hawk Meadow Farm, 5066 Mott Evans Road, Trumansburg, N.Y. Space is limited to 25.

Michael DeMunn is a prominent forester and conservationist who has helped preserve thousands of acres of wild lands in New York state. DeMunn is of French-English and Seneca-Onondaga Iroquois heritage. Among many awards and honors, he most cherishes his adoption into the Seneca Hawk Clan, where he was given the name “Da Hah’ da nyah,” which means “he protects the forest.”
