Sustainable Woodstock is excited to be launching a new work-study series about carbon and how we can help manage carbon on our own properties through healthy forestry practices. For our first Work-Study Group discussion Vikke Vas from Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park will present and lead a discussion about the history of conservation and forest management in Woodstock and how unsustainable deforestation of Vermont led to a legacy of conservation and the longest managed forest in the United States.
