Seventy-Five years ago this year, the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) established the first certified tree farm in North America on the Clemons Tree Farm near the City of Montesano, in Grays Harbor County, Washington. From that beginning , the ATFS has grown to over 80,000 family owned tree farms nationwide, and over 900 in Washington State alone. A coalition of forestry partners has come together to organize the celebration of the significant milestone.
The morning will be a ceremony “Honoring Tree Farmers” who epitomize what it is to be Stewards of the Land, and then head out for some interesting forester-led tours of Lake Sylvia State Park after lunch at Montesano high school.
Have you noticed the snow and cold this winter? Is it part of the future?
The Chehalis River Basin Land Trust is sponsoring a community forum to talk about climate change and how our community can respond.
The discussion will be introduced by Centralia College instructor Dr. Lisa Carlson. She offers this statement: Climate change is here. Predictions of warmer temperatures, more wildfire and more intense storms seem to be coming true. What does this mean for Washington State? How will my family and I be affected? What can we do to prepare for it and help reduce our climate impact?
The event will be on Wednesday, March 6th, at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Grand Mound. The event is from 6 to 8 PM; light refreshments will be served.
