The 2022 Winter Woodlot Tour was amazing. We had over 600 visitors to see the 16 exhibits, plus free sleigh rides and hot cider. Many thanks to all the exhibitors, and to the Wildlife Conservation Fund for providing the funds for our event. The Winter Woodlot Tour was organized by Trout River Environmental Committee, Wheatley River Improvement Group, Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group, and Central Queens Wildlife Federation.
The Winter Woodlot Tour will be taking place on Saturday February 19th. We decided to postpone in the hope that the pandemic restrictions would be lifted by then.
Join us on Saturday February 5th, from 9am to 1pm, for the 2022 Winter Woodlot Tour. The storm date is February 19th. The Woodlot Tour is a family friendly event, with numerous exhibits showing how to make the most of your woodlot, and improve its value to wildlife. There will be snowshoes to try on our snowshoe trail, maple syrup tapping, woodland crafts, forestry information, displays of woodland wildlife, chainsaw advice, nature walks, free hot cider, a warming tent and, pandemic rules permitting, free sleigh rides. The event is funded by the Wildlife Conservation Fund, and hosted by four watershed groups including TREC. The event will be signed off Route 2 in Pleasant Valley, just up Millvale Road. Please be aware that a Vax Pass and ID will be required.
If you want to see what the TREC work-crew did over the summer of 2021, our Summer Field Report has just been released, and it has all the information.
