Low Impact Forestry Newsletter – October 6, 2020

October 6, 2020

Thank you to everyone who attended last weekend’s Common Ground Country Fair!

LIF would also like to extend a special thank you to Jenn Hicks and Tom Doak from Maine Woodland Owners, Nancy Olmstead from Maine Natural Areas Program, LIF Committee Chair Tim Libby, and Brad Johnson and Derek O’Toole for presenting during the Livestream. We’d also like to thank Morten Moesswilde, Andy Shultz, and Jan Santerre from the Maine Forest Service, and Sam Brown and Peter Hagerty for submitting videos to the content library.

For those who weren’t able to make it to the fair, or would like to take another look, we’ve included all of the LIF videos and presentations here. Happy viewing!

As always, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] with suggestions and material for future editions.

Low Impact Forestry Content for 2020 Common Ground Country Fair

August 2, 2020

We're currently seeking content for the LIF area at the 2020 alternative online Common Ground Country Fair and are reaching out to you for your ideas and contributions.

Please see the Educational Content Submission Guidelines for details about content format and parameters. There are several ways to get involved, and we'd love to include you. Submit ideas for Livestream content by August 7 and for pre-recorded content by August 17. If you have an idea or are interested in submitting content, please contact Noah for more information.


We hope to use this space to build the LIF community, share forestry information and educational opportunities, and highlight some of the work being done by LIF practitioners and landowners.

Our format and content are a work in progress, so please reach out to [email protected] with your comments, additions, and suggestions.
