Post-Harvest Forest Tour

September 17,  10:00 a.m. – 1p.m.  several stops in northern Wexford County

The Wexford and Missaukee Conservation Districts, along with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, will host a tour of several forest stands during and in successive years after various timber harvests in order to illustrate to forest landowners what to expect after a harvest and how the resulting forest will look as it recovers.  This will be a driving tour that will visit several sites around northern Wexford County. We will be gathering at Liberty Township Hall, located at 7478 N. 41 Rd., Manton, MI .  If this event is something you would like to attend, please call Larry at the Wexford Conservation District office at 231-775-7681 ext. 3 or email larry.czelusta@macd.org to register or if you have questions.

The primary responsibility of the Missaukee Conservation District is to protect our natural resources. We encourage the use of land and water within the limits of its capabilities, and encourage the treatment of each acre with the proper protection and improvement it may need.

The Missaukee Conservation District was first formed in 1949 by a group of area farmers with the intent of working with local landowners to conserve soil and water resources and to prevent and control erosion. The District is still committed to that goal with a mission to provide for the care, informed usage, and protection of natural resources by creating awareness of conservation issues and by being the leader in providing innovative assistance.

Michigan’s Conservation Districts are special purpose local units of State Government that utilize state, federal and private sector resources to solve today’s conservation issues.  Created to serve as stewards of natural resources, Michigan’s Conservation Districts take an ecosystem approach to conservation and protection. Conservation Districts are referred to as “gateways” in their local communities. They provide linkages between land managers and a host of conservation service providers that include state, federal and local governments, conservation organizations, and internet resources. Conservation Districts continually scan the needs of their local communities, work in partnership with others involved in conservation to set local priorities, and develop action plans to solve natural resource problems. The delivery of these efforts by Conservation Districts allows citizens to manage their private lands for a cleaner, healthier Michigan. It allows the public a point of access in their communities when questions arise on how to manage natural resources.
