This Week at the Museum

December 4, 2016

We’re Invited on a Forest Trek at Sandy Creek! Get on Board!


Mike Wharton will lead a tour of Sandy Creek’s Managed Forest Project on Wednesday, December 7 at 9 am. Coffee, baked goods and conversation after the walk. Find the Sandy Creek Nature Center at 205 Old Commerce Road.

In Drew Lanham's new book, The Place Home, he says, "Loblolly pine is a fast grower that stretches tall and mostly straight in forests that have been touched occasionally by fire and saw. In open stands, where the widely spaced trees can grow with broom sedge and Indian grass waving underneath, bobwhite quail, Bachman's sparrows, and a bevy of other wildlife can find a place to call home. But where flames and forestry have been excluded, spindly trees fight with one another for sun and soil and will grow thick like the hair on a dog's back. In those impenetrable stands white-tailed deer find secure bedrooms but little else dwells.”

According to Emily Carr, this quote  pretty well sums up the goals of Sandy Creek’s Managed Forest Project. A forest that supports all kinds of biodiversity.
