Zoom Presentation on Forest Health and Resiliency at Turtleback Mountain and Turtlehead Preserves

The Conservation Land Bank and the Preservation Trust recently completed a forest assessment at Turtleback and Turtlehead Preserves. The resulting report (click here to view report) outlines a variety of forest management actions aimed at increasing forest health, habitat value and climate change resiliency.

Staff are incorporating the recommended actions into the forthcoming update to the Turtleback Mountain Stewardship and Management Plan. In anticipation of a future that includes more active forest stewardship, the Land Bank recently applied for and received a $30,000 grant from the Washington Department of Natural Resources to implement small-scale forest management demonstration projects.

To learn more about the Land Bank’s forest health and resiliency objectives and the planned demonstration projects, please join Land Bank, SJI Conservation District and Rain Shadow Consulting staff at 5:30pm on Wednesday, December 15, for a 30-minute Zoom presentation followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. The presentation and Q&A will be recorded and posted to the Land Bank website for later viewing.
