Second Sandy Mush Forest Restoration Coalition meeting
October 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
RSVP/Register here! (No charge. Non-Guild members can ignore and close the login popup on the initial registration screen).
A full agenda is coming soon…
The Forest Stewards Guild is partnering with EcoForesters and the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) on a project in Sandy Mush to increase capacity for forest restoration activities. One particular focus of the project is increasing landowner access to resources for invasive plant control. As part of these efforts, we’re working to create a community coalition to increase the communication, coordination, and success of forest restoration activities in Sandy Mush. Our plan is to involve community members directly as key members of the Coalition, to share stories about managing invasive species in their woods and help identify the best way to move forward with a plan of action.
The Coalition meetings
Even if you missed the first meeting, the Coalition meeting is open to the public, and anyone who is interested in the topic of forest health in Sandy Mush is encouraged to attend.
At our first meeting in August, we worked with community members and stakeholders to shape the vision of the Coalition, define conservation goals in the community, and provide input on invasive plant prioritization mapping.
In this next meeting on October 10, we will revisit the major themes identified among participants and will also be seeking input on the Coalition’s vision and mission, so please review the document.
Snacks and beverages will be provided.
Thank you to our partners at Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy for the photos in this meeting announcement. This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership.
