We steward forest, meadow, and wetland on our farm in the Catskills. I am a Master Forest Owner Volunteer in training, a member of the board of the Michael Kudish Natural History Preserve, a member of the board of CCE Delaware County, a member of the Catskill Forest Association. I am most interested in forest health, biodiversity and climate change and would like to connect with other landowners about forest health and wildlife in the Catskills and beyond.
