Rio Grande National Forest series will focus on forest management
IN its next forest specialist series, the Rio Grande National Forest will cover “Forest Management – Planting, Logging and Monitoring” during a virtual session on Wednesday, Feb. 22.
Kevin Duda, vegetation program manager, will address how timber management decisions are made, among other questions. Duda will talk about aspects of forest management including tree planting, logging, and monitoring. He will also talk about the processes for evaluating management needs of the thousands of acres of the forest. Duda has been working on the Rio Grande National Forest since 2005.
The Rio Grande National Forest covers over 1.8 million acres, much of which is forested. Its forest specialist series is intended to help the public better understand the work of the forest service office and local public lands.
This monthly series is in partnership with the San Juan Mountains Association. The Feb. 22 event begins at 5 p.m. and can be viewed at https://www.fs.usda.gov/riogrande.
