Forestry Financial Incentives and Assistance

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a discussion on available financial incentives and assistance with the Maine Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service! Financials can be a large limiting factor to stewarding your land well. Luckily, there are resources available – whether you need a new bridge, have an understory of barberry, or simply need an updated forest management plan.

Snacks and hot beverages will be provided to those attending in-person.
