One of these years I am going to make it up for the tour. There has been some talk of trying one in D13 but not yet.

Re: Potter County Forest/Wildlife Habitat Tour

I wanted to update the participants to the tour and also topics of disscusion. Scott Stoleson (Research Wildlife Biologist, USFS Northern Research Station) will also be joining us on the tour.

Scott has an extensive research background in wildlife population responce and impacts from silvicultural (timbersale) treatments.
