Saturday, September 21st – 5:00 p.m.
Enrolled in UVA, this property was somewhat neglected by the previous owner and Steve has been on an enthusiastic learning curve to manage the invasives and prepare to implement the forestry plan.
Steve writes: A gentle walk through 72 acres of forest, fields, and views of 3 acres of ponds and wetlands. Otters, muskrats, and many birds have been sighted there. We believe the property was a small dairy operation and had cows through the 80’s. Evidence of the dairy farm shows throughout the forest, with old fence posts, barbed wire and stone walls. The forest is a mix of mostly mature softwood and deciduous woodlands with well-maintained trails we share with the VAST folks during the winter. Sadly, the powerline right of way has been a conduit for the invasive species that plague our area. We would be happy to have a stroll through the forest, and even show you around the barns on our property.
