Join land stewards Jason & Scott for a hike to loop over Phoebes Nable Mt. on Saturday 10/10/15 (rain date will be Sunday 10/11)
We will meet at the parking lot at the end of New Portsmouth Road at 10 am and shortly after will begin our hike up Phoebe's Nable Mt. Trail from the parking lot. It is a somewhat steep trail that follows a logging road and skid trails. Partial views should be visible through the trees east and into the property to the Piper and Beauty Ledges.
THIS WORKDAY HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR AUG 11 DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER. IT IS RESCHEDULED FOR WEDS AUG 12, same time!
The Forest Society is working on a new long-distance trail that will eventually connect our Hedgehog Mountain Forest with High Five Reservation (Wilson Hill) to the south. On this workday, we will construct a footbridge and some stepping stones on this new trail, clear some blowdown and clean up some trash in what will eventually be a new parking area for the trailhead.
Forest Society Lead Forester Wendy Weisiger and Jake Bronnenberg of Bronnenberg Logging & Trucking will lead this half-day workshop using classroom and field instruction to teach you how to work safely with a chainsaw in the woods. Topics will include safety considerations, felling, bucking and routine maintenance. NOTE: This training is required for Land Stewards to operate chainsaws on SPNHF properties. Please bring your own saw, fuel, oil, maintenance tools, and safety equipment (chaps, gloves, helmet and eye & ear protection).
