The Fifth Annual Catskill Forest Festival, hosted by The Catskill Forest Association --
On Saturday, July 26th you can find out all about our forest. Who has not thought about what is going on in the forest around us? Could we be taking the forest for granted? Get more connected with the forested landscape as well as have fun. There will be a logging competition (lots of noise) professionals as well as non-professionals will be competing on a variety of skills, including who can saw with precision and who can calculate exactly where a tree will fall.
There will be lots of vendors, from hand-crafted furniture, wooden boats, arts and crafts that are made from forest materials to wood and pellet stoves and furnaces and maple syrup. Educational 20 minute presentations will be offered by experts on subjects such as: Bringing back the American Chestnut tree, New York forests – are they an endangered species?, Forestry for Wildlife, the Catskills Golden Eagle Project and Woody Biomass opportunities for heating our communities.
Food, drink, music, games and horse rides will be plentiful. It’s free and fun!
