Don't miss this opportunity! Ecologist Tom Wessels will be joining us by Zoom to “Read… the Forested Landscape”. Tom has been studying New England forests for over three decades and can tell you things about the history of our local forests that you would never think possible.

This workshop will be based on our photos of Ashby forests.

Tom Wessels is a terrestrial ecologist and professor emeritus at Antioch University where he founded the master's degree program in Conservation Biology. He is the author of numerous books with his latest being “New England's Roadside Ecology: Explore 30 of the Region's Unique Natural Areas.”

This workshop is made possible through a grant by the Ashby Charitable Fund.


The 2023 Duck Race will take place Sunday May 7th at 1pm at DCR’s Willard Brook State Forest.
