Posted in Chatfield The Great Outdoors

On July 30, 2014 the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District will be hosting a field day to explore past, present, and future restoration practices taking place at the Isinours Forestry Unit just outside of Preston, Minn. The tours will begin starting at 6 p.m. with a light supper being served before at 5:30 p.m. Those attending the field day will observe several features directly, and benefit from the expert knowledge of foresters and conservation specialists alike. Presenters include Jim Edgar (DNR Forester), Mitch Gilbert (Private Forester), and Rich Biske (The Nature Conservancy).

This is a fun and informational opportunity for anyone interested in forestry restoration, the great outdoors, or local forestry projects taking place within our area. Topics that will be covered during the tour include:

1. Bluff prairie restoration practices

2. Cedar and invasive buckthorn removal

3. Other demonstrations and projects carried out in years past

Anyone who wishes to enjoy a fun and educational walk with fantastic views of bluff country is encouraged to come!

*Note: Clothing appropriate for hiking through woodland terrain is encouraged. Accommodations will be made for those who may have difficulty navigating through rough terrain.

Directions to Isinours: Take Fillmore Cty. 17 north from Preston about 4 miles to the Root River trail. Turn onto the gravel road located directly next to the Root River trail. The parking area is on the north side of the trail a quarter mile down the gravel road.
