ALFORD SPRINGS NATURE PRESERVE, FORESTRY PROJECT AND INTERPRETIVE TRAIL SIGN.

The focus of the project was to collect specific data about wildlife habitat and vegetation for Berkshire Natural Resources Council in regards to the Forestry project that resulted in the heavy cutting of trees along the Father Loop trail at Alford Springs. The cutting has been evaluated for its potential to serve ecological benefits associated with early successional habitat for wildlife, ability to maintain production of high quality lumber, as well as what the project will look like in the future for BNRC to install an educational interpretive sign on the trial that will engage recreational users with the significance of the property.
