Learn About Forest Management at Memorial Forest

On Saturday, April 1, Executive Director Lisa Vernegaard will lead a walking tour of SVT's Memorial Forest Reservation in Sudbury. Lisa will lead you through parts of the forest that have recently been thinned as part of our multi-year project to restore the rare pitch pine/scrub oak barrens to this landscape. 

During the walk, Lisa will explain why SVT embarked on the project, which species it will affect, and how we expect the forest to respond. Space is limited, so please register today if you wish to attend.

In the meantime, you are welcome to tour Memorial Forest on your own. In February, we reopened the Desert Loop trail, which had been closed during the tree-thinning. We have posted new trail markers to help you find your way, and we will continue to tidy up the trail corridor as the spring progresses.
