In addition to the comradery, and abundance of culinary treats provided by our members, our guest speaker will be Mike Zagata, NYFOA Director of Organization Development. Mike will offer a “Powerpoint” presentation which covers the history of NY Forests, the impact on them as a result of the ”preservation” movement, and the recent “Young Forest Initiative” which has been advocated by NYFOA and other organizations throughout the state in conversations with the DEC and legislatures in Albany. Mike will discuss what it all means to the landowner’s goal of being able to combine managing for wood fiber, and for wildlife at the same time.
There will be a raffle the evening of the potluck dinner for a pair of DryShod waterproof boots. Tickets will be available for $1 at the door. Door prizes include a Taste NY store gift basket (roughly $35 value) a $25 gift certificate from Norwich Implements and a $25 gift certificate from CNY Power Sports in Cortland. Other door prizes are being sought. Please Bring a dish to share (power outlets will be available for crock pots) and your own plate and utensils. Hot and cold beverages will be available.
