On Sunday April 30th, 2017 the Susquehannock State Forest will be hosting its annual forest management/habitat tour. The Susquehannock State Forest is located almost entirely in Potter County and consists of approximately 265,000 acres. Representatives from the Susquehannock State Forest, Sinnemahoning State Park, Black Forest Conservation Association and Pennsylvania Game Commission Elk Biologist and local land Manager will be participating in this year’s tour.
Several different site visits are planned for this year’s tour. The site visits will include an area within the Sinnemahoning State Park where they have been working cooperatively with the PGC to improve wildlife habitat, an active state forest timbersale, gas storage field within the Susquehannock State Forest, the Hammersley Wild Area and the Sinnemahonoing State Park Wildlife Center.
The goal of the tour is to exchange information, build a better relationship with those that use the state forest, observe and discuss some of the challenges involved in both sustainable forest and wildlife management and examine some of the forest habitat improvements that are taking place. Participants will hopefully leave with a better understanding of the interaction between forest management and wildlife habitat and be able to incorporate some of these techniques on their own private lands.
The tour will begin at 9:00am at the Sinnemahoning State Park Wildlife Center. The Sinnemahoning State Park Wildlife Center is located at 4843 Park Road, in Austin. The tour will conclude at 2:00 pm. The tour is free of charge. Transportation and lunch will be provided. If you have any questions regarding the tour or would like to register for the tour, please call the district office at 814-274-3600 or email at email@example.com by Saturday April 29th.
